Cecil officials made no mistakes in blocking a natural gas compressor station there, a Washington County judge ruled this week.

The ruling upholds a move by the township's Zoning Hearing Board to reject MarkWest Energy Partners LP's request to put a 72-acre station in the township's light industrial district. The district borders residential areas with homes more than 1,000 feet away, according to the court ruling.

Common Pleas Judge John F. DiSalle issued the ruling Wednesday. He noted that his ruling could be undone and the station could be built if a pending Supreme Court decision allows the state to preempt the local zoning rules that decided the case.
