Counties Request Delay in Mountain Valley Pipeline Proceedings
Water and Power Law Group submitted a filing to FERC on August 10, requesting reconsideration of FERC’s schedule for environmental analysis for the proposed Mountain Valley Pipeline, as well as better integration of the record of information filed by Mountain Valley Pipeline, LLC. Two of WPLG's clients, Roanoke and Giles counties in Virginia, were joined by neighboring Craig County in the request. The draft Environmental Impact Statement is scheduled for release in September 2016, despite a number of outstanding data needs, including those necessary to determine the proposed project’s impacts on geological, water, and cultural resources.
