In April 2019, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service began to evaluate the impacts of sediment pollution from construction of the Mountain Valley Pipeline on local threatened and endangered species. The agency expressed its concern in a letter to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Although the agency’s initial analysis demonstrated that endangered species, including the endemic Roanoke Logperch, are at increased risk, work on the pipeline continues, and the wellbeing of the logperch, the candy darter, the Indiana bat and more remains under threat.
