No Pipelines

Throughout the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s public comment period for the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement, we worked with partners and grassroots groups across three states to gather thousands oral and written comments from concerned citizens about the inadequacy of the DEIS.

Even if pipelines are approved by FERC, states also have to grant water quality permits. The West Virginia Dept. of Environmental Protection held public hearings on the Mountain Valley Pipeline’s water permits earlier this year, and we helped collect citizen comments.

We’ll continue to put pressure on our state decision-makers throughout the process. To stay informed about the latest steps you can take, join our email list.
