NRDC, LCV, NextGen Letter to Gov. Northam Requesting New Threat Review from Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley Pipelines

February 27, 2018

LCV NextGen sent a letter asking Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam to now initiate an individual pipeline permit process he called for throughout 2017, now that the U.S. Army Corps recently completed its own water crossing review process. The state DEQ has clear legal authority to now conduct that review and a new NRDC report shows the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley pipelines pose a serious threat to drinking water, wetlands, trout and the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
