Two Virginia counties deferred approvals of pipe storage yards for the Atlantic Coast
Pipeline. On January 25, the Highland County Planning Commission, citing numerous errors
and inadequacies, tabled two land-use applications for Dominion to establish proposed Atlantic
Coast Pipeline construction lay-down material storage yards in McDowell and south of
Monterey. On February 1 the Augusta County Board of Zoning voted to table consideration of a
proposal for a contractor’s storage yard to be located north of Churchville on U.S. 42 due to
concerns over traffic and the impact on neighboring properties. This is the second time the
Augusta board has deferred action on the ACP application for the storage yard. For more on
both actions, see the stories below from the Recorder and News Leader.
