No transmission pipeline shall be commissioned, nor shall any hazardous substance be introduced into the pipeline prior to the pipeline operator receiving written approval of its emergency preparedness plan by the Chief of Police or his designee. Transmission pipeline operators shall designate a responsible local emergency response official and a direct twenty-four-hour emergency phone number.
I. 
Insurance required. No transmission pipeline owner or operator shall commission any transmission pipeline or introduce any hazardous substance into a transmission pipeline without first securing insurance policies covering general liability, environmental incidents and contamination, and property damage in an aggregate amount to be determined by the Township and based upon reasonable estimates of potential liability and property damage that would result from a leak, spill or other failure of a transmission pipeline. Prior to commissioning any transmission pipeline and every year in which the transmission pipeline is in operation thereafter, the pipeline owner or operator shall submit proof its insurance coverage to the Township, and the Township shall be named as an additional insured on all required policies.
