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).
The Virginia Outdoors Foundation (VOF) is scheduled to consider on February 9 the application by Dominion Transmission, Inc. to receive approval for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline to cross 11 conservation easements in Highland, Bath, Augusta and Nelson Counties held by the VOF.
The North Carolina Alliance to Protect Our Peoples and the Places We Live (APPPL) is organizing a Walk along the 205-mile Atlantic Coast Pipeline route in NC, beginning on Saturday March 4 at the Virginia-North Carolina border in Northhampton County,
