The Virginia State Water Control Board will convene a special meeting on Friday, March 1 in Richmond to discuss how it should proceed to implement its decision of December 13, 2018 to consider the revocation of the Section 401 certification it granted to the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) in December 2017. The announcement of the meeting comes two months after the Board had voted on December 13 to hold a public hearing as part of its revocation consideration. The Board’s action followed numerous citations for violations for the MVP, most involving water quality issues, and a lawsuit filed the previous week by the Virginia Attorney General against MVP for repeated violations.
The March 1 Water Board meeting, according to the announcement, will include an executive session which will not be open to the public. For details, click here.
