The Virginia League of Conservation Voters launches Wednesday June 1 at 7 pm a series of webinars on resisting methane buildout in the state. The first webinar will explore the energy and utility forces driving pipeline construction in Virginia and what can be done to protect the Commonwealth and climate.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has granted a request from the Mountain Valley Pipeline to change its crossing method for some 180 bodies of water and wetlands. FERC’s April 8 Order allows the project to bore under the bodies of water and wetlands instead of the open-cut method that the project’s original certificate approved.
Challenges to the environmental impacts of the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) have continued in the past week in two federal court proceedings.
On April 1, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals refused an appeal by the pipeline’s owners to reconsider before the full Court the January 25 decision by a three-judge panel to strike down the Biological Opinion issued for the MVP by the U.S.
