The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) website which has been down since May 22, was due to operational again by June 1 (though as of 3 pm on June 1, it was not). As a result, the DEQ has indicated it will extend the comment period for receiving public input on the adequacy of the U.S. Corps of Engineers’ NWP 12 permit for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline and the Mountain Valley Pipeline. A new deadline will be announced as soon as the website is back up and we will advise you of that by email.
In the meantime, the next regular meeting of the State Water Control Board, which had been scheduled for June 11, has been cancelled and will rescheduled for August 21 in Richmond.
