Celebrating Earth Day in Pennsylvania | Energy Transfer

Protecting and preserving the environment has always been a top priority at Energy Transfer, including the conservation of natural resources as we conduct our business. Beginning with the planning and construction of our assets and continuing through the restoration and operation, we are committed to safeguarding our country’s most precious resources.

In honor of Earth Day, we visited areas where we previously installed pipelines to show our appreciation for Pennsylvania’s beautiful environment and take restoration efforts one step further. This year our team traveled to Raystown Lake in Huntingdon County, as well as Loyalhanna Lake in Westmoreland County, to volunteer for cleanups and habitat improvement projects.

Protecting the environment and giving back to communities where we build and operate infrastructure are at the forefront of everything we do. We look forward to continuing this Earth Day tradition for years to come and to assisting the Army Corps and local conservation groups across Pennsylvania.

Raystown Lake Fish Habitat Structures

On April 19, a group of Energy Transfer employees helped the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and other volunteers, including students from Juniata College, to build fish habitat structures at Raystown Lake. A widely utilized practice to enhance underwater habitat, building structures and dropping them to the bottom of the lake provides fish with hiding places to hunt prey, as well as areas for plankton, algae and other food sources to grow. We were happy to help build about 40 structures and to provide a pontoon boat to drop them into various sections of the lake.
