ABRA’s Pipeline Compliance Surveillance (CSI) program is seeking assistance from knowledgeable individuals who can participate as CSI Aerial Photo Reviewers. Although we especially seek the help of professionals with erosion and sediment control, stormwater management, and other water-resource backgrounds, the involvement of others is welcomed and encouraged.
Recruitment of participating volunteers in ABRA’s Pipeline Compliance Surveillance Initiative (CSI) is underway. In order for the program to monitor construction activity for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline to be fully effective, volunteers are needed. To sign-up, click here.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) released last Fall a new schedule for its consideration of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP). FERC asked the National Forest Service (USFS) to comment on the schedule. Final approval of the project by FERC requires the issuance of a special use permit by the NFS regarding the pipeline’s proposed path through the Monongahela National Forest and the George Washington National Forest (GWNF).
