Environmental Journalists Object to FERC DEIS Comment Procedures

The Society of Environmental Journalists (SoEJ), a professional association of over 1200 journalists who cover environmental issues, has written the Acting Chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), Cheryl LaFleur, expressing concerns about the procedures used by the agency in conducting public comment meetings on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP).

“FERC’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline provides inaccurate, incomplete, and incorrect information about impacts on our core forested areas, streams, wildlife, and recreation as it cuts a 21-mile permanent swath over rugged mountains and valleys in our National Forests,” so states a new study posted by the Dominion Pipeline Monitoring Coalition.
