State regulators will hold a public briefing Tuesday night to answer questions and hear concerns about an explosion two weeks ago at a Susquehanna County natural gas compressor station.

The meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. at Montrose High School. It will feature regulators from the Department of Environmental Protection and officials with Williams Partners, the natural gas company that owns the Lathrop station in Springville Twp. that was damaged in an explosion on March 29.

"This is our chance to answer questions from the public who rightly have a lot of questions about what happened that day," DEP spokeswoman Colleen Connolly said. "We want to hear from them."

A meeting and hearing on air quality permits for four proposed Susquehanna County compressor stations that was originally scheduled for Tuesday evening at Montrose High School will now be held on Thursday, April 26 at Elk Lake High School. The four proposed stations are part of a pipeline system built by Laser Northeast Gathering, a Williams subsidiary. The informational meeting will begin at 6 p.m. and the public hearing will start at 7:30.
