Comments on the Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (DSEIS) for restoration work on the Atlantic Coast Pipeline route are due on Monday, September 13. The DESIS was published July 23 (for background and a link to the draft, click here). Upon the publication of the draft, ABRA issued a statement to the media:
“The Allegheny-Blue Ridge Alliance is disappointed that the draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for restoration of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline route does not address the important issue of requiring Atlantic Coast Pipeline, LLC to restore to landowners the full use of their property that was taken for a pipeline that will not be built.”
In subsequent communications with FERC staff ABRA was told that the issue of easements still held by Atlantic Coast Pipeline, LLC was not an appropriate topic to include in the DSEIS, but that does not preclude the Commissioners from addressing the issue. Comments to that effect are expected to be filed by several ABRA members.
