The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers filed a motion on January 18 with the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals for a remand and vacating of the permit that the Huntington District of the Corps had issued for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) to cross rivers and streams and West Virginia.
Modifications to the West Virginia regulations covering stream crossings for pipelines and similar projects have been proposed by the state’s Department of Environmental Protection. The modifications address the issue of the state’s existing requirement governing the timeframe within which stream crossing must be completed within 72 hours.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ issuance of a Nationwide 12 Permit to the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) has been held to be invalid by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. The November 27 Order from the Court held that Corps’ permit for the MVP violated the Clean Water Act and that the project will likely require an individual permit to cross streams.
