County Presentation of Pipeline Risk Assessment
What does it really mean to say that you are more likely to die in a car accident than in a pipeline explosion? And does it matter that the pipeline explosion could take out a school? Hear from the experts while they explain it to County Council!

About the event
Here is the description of the Monday night event from the County's Public Relations Department:
Delaware County Council will hold a public presentation of the Pipeline Risk Assessment on Dec. 17 at 6:00pm in the County Council Public Meeting Room, located on the first floor of the Government Center (201 W. Front St., Media, PA)
Council contracted with G2 Integrated Solutions, based in Texas to conduct an independent study of the risks associated with the
operation of the Mariner East 2 pipeline and the converted Adelphia pipeline. Analysts from G2 will present the findings of the study to
Council and to the public on Dec. 17.
In response to public discussions, this risk assessment was undertaken to estimate the level of individual risk to Delaware County residents from either the Mariner East 2 pipeline or the converted Adelphia pipeline and then compare to other common sources of risk experienced by the general population. The Mariner East 2 pipeline and Adelphia pipeline quantitative risk assessments were executed in a systematic process in which potential accident events were identified, the associated consequence and likelihood of such events were determined, and the risk measures estimated.
