The Virginia State Water Control Board meetings scheduled over the next two weeks provide a critical opportunity for citizens to voice their opinions on why water quality certifications should not be approved for the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) and the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP).
North Carolina’s Department of Environmental Quality (NCDEQ) has asked the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) – for the fourth time – to provide additional information before the agency can continue its consideration of whether to issue a certification for the pipeline under the requirements of Section 401 of the Clean Water Act.
The Allegheny-Blue Ridge Alliance has formalized the organization by the adoption of bylaws and the creation of a Board of Directors. Earlier this year ABRA incorporated with the Commonwealth of Virginia, its stated mission being “to protect the heritage, resources and economy of the Allegheny-Blue Ridge region.”
The initial Board of Directors and elected officers are:
- Allen Johnson (Chair),
