Next Tuesday, September 5 is the deadline for comments to be submitted to the U.S. Forest Service (NFS) in response to the agency’s proposal to amend the Forest Plans for the George Washington and Monongahela National Forests to permit construction of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.  The NFS had published on July 21 its Draft Decision Document which concluded:  “we have decided to authorize Atlantic to use and occupy NFS land to construct, operate, maintain, and eventually decommission a natural gas pipeline on NFS lands administered by the MNF and GWNF.”  The proposal, which ABRA opposes because it is based on insufficient evidence to support the decision, was discussed in more detail in ABRA Update 140.

Details on how to file objections to the NFS proposal are set forth here.
