Over two dozen affected landowners and others concerned about the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) and the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) provided commentary May 17 to the Virginia State Water Control Board on the dangers to state water quality posed by the two pipeline projects.  The Board is the state agency responsible for deciding whether to certify the ACP and MVP under requirements of Section 401 of the federal Clean Water Act.  Although the water certification issue was not on the meeting agenda, the presentations were made to provide education to the Water Board members in advance of its considering the issue – perhaps as early as its Fall meeting – after staff for the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality completes its analysis of each pipeline’s application for water quality certification.
