The U.S. Forest Service (NFS) published on July 30 a Notice of Intent to prepare a Supplement Environmental Impact Statement (SEIS) for the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) “to address the Fourth Circuit Court’s ruling, new information, and changed circumstances such as new Federally listed threatened and endangered species and critical habitat designations.”  The draft SEIS is expected to be available in September, with the final SEIS completed later in 2020. The NFS announcement follows a July 16 notice by the U.S. Park Service that it will be issuing a new right of way permit for the MVP to cross Park Service land.
