Landowners whose property is directly affected by the Atlantic Coast Pipeline or the Mountain Valley Pipeline are being urged to sign on to a letter to Virginia Governor Northam. The letter notes examples of serious harm to property and the environment from pipeline projects elsewhere in the country and urges the Governor to “take action to prevent similar harms in Virginia. We believe that impacts to water quality, including drinking water sources and the Chesapeake Bay watershed, will be significant and sustained. Therefore we entreat you to fulfill your pledge that the pipelines be “held to the highest environmental standards.”
The letter effort is being spearheaded by the Virginia Conservation Network and several ABRA members. To sign on to the letter, click here. The deadline for being added to the letter is Sunday, March 11 at 10 pm.
