An appeal by Atlantic Coast Pipeline, LLC (ACP, LLC) for a rehearing of the December 13. 2018 decision of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals to vacate the U.S. Forest Service permit for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) was rejected on February 25.
Attorneys representing 10 local, state and regional organizations sent a letter on February 28 to the members of the Virginia State Water Control Board, urging the Board to start promptly a process to revoke the water quality certification issued for the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP).
ABRA’s Pipeline CSI program has developed a new slide presentation describing the unavoidable impact of the ACP on water resources and the failure of regulatory oversight. The presentation, Pending Construction of the ACP in the Virginia Mountains: Empty Assurances, compares government and company promises with the realities of environmental review and enforcement and the record of ACP construction in West Virginia.
