A proposed $675 million natural gas power plant on the Lancaster County-Maryland line would mean a new 9-mile gas pipeline and a 7-mile water line through southern Lancaster County.

Williams, the Tulsa-based company that would build the $80 million 20-inch Rock Springs gas line in Drumore and Fulton townships,  is holding a public workshop to explain the project and receive feedback from 6-8 p.m. Wednesday at Solanco High School in Quarryville.

There will be detailed aerial maps of the proposed pipeline’s route.

The former Gerald Kreider poultry farm in southern Lancaster County has taken on a new shine.

About 8,000 panels of glasslike crystalline silica may now be seen glinting in the sun as what will be Pennsylvania’s largest solar farm takes shape in East Drumore Township, just south of Buck.

By the time the field of solar panels begins producing electricity sometime this fall, 20,702 panels will be in place, each about 3 feet by 5 feet, covering some 30 acres.

Construction on the Keystone Solar Project began about six weeks ago, following 18 months of planning and marketing of the “green” electricity to be produced.
