On Tuesday, Jan. 8, tell the Air Pollution Control Board: No pipeline compressor station in historic Union Hill!
Dominion Energy wants to build a massive fracked gas compressor station for its Atlantic Coast Pipeline in the historic African-American community of Union Hill in Buckingham County, Va.
The giant 54,000 horsepower compressor station would run 24/7, creating toxic air emissions and near-constant noise pollution and harming the health and well-being of nearby communities.
Dominion needs an air pollution permit from the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality in order to build the compressor station. Over the summer, hundreds of Virginians sent in comments and concerns about the draft air permit. Now, the DEQ will present its recommendation and a summary of all our comments to the Air Pollution Control Board whose members will decide whether to approve or deny the permit.
