About the Program:


Please join SWEP of Greater Philadelphia at PADEP’s Southeast Regional Office for a new member mingle and a PADEP Lunch and Learn. Come out in the morning to socialize with members new and veteran and then please stay for an engaging review of a hot topic at the PADEP.  Mr. Cosmo Servidio will provide an overview of Governor Wolf’s Pipeline Infrastructure Task Force. Chaired by Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Secretary John Quigley, the taskforce was created to recommend policies, guidelines and best practices to guide the anticipated and unprecedented build-out of pipeline infrastructure expected to take place across Pennsylvania during the next decade. Mr. Domenic Rocco will provide a technical explanation and deeper look into the potential updates to guidelines, policies and procedures related to pipeline projects – including a best practices manual for pipeline projects.  Hope to see you there!


SWEP Greater of Philadelphia thanks PADEP for allowing us to use their meeting space!

Proceeds from this event will go to our grants and scholarships programs.
