Downstream Strategies: Threats to Groundwater from the Mountain Valley Pipeline & Atlantic Coast Pipeline in Virginia

May 29, 2018

Downstream Strategies prepared a report for the Natural Resources Defense Council on the threats to Virginia's groundwater from construction and operation of two proposed major gas pipelines, the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley pipelines. They would cross 18 counties and two cities in Virginia as they travel from West Virginia through Virginia and on into North Carolina. The report finds substantial threats to 100 miles of land, water wells and an aquifer relied on for drinking water.
