Help Community Threatened by Compressor Station

Dominion Energy wants to build a massive compressor station for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline in the historic African-American community of Union Hill in Buckingham County, Va. The giant engine would run 24/7, creating toxic air emissions and near-constant noise that could harm the health and well-being of nearby communities. Dominion needs an air pollution permit from the Department of Environmental Quality.

DEQ will hold a public comment period Aug. 8 to Sept.11 and will accept comments regarding the draft air permit and proposed compressor station. DEQ will also hold an information session Aug. 16 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Buckingham Co. Administration Building and a public hearing on Sept. 11 from 5:00 to 9:30 p.m. at the Buckingham County Middle School. Send in your comments and show up at the hearing to support the Union Hill and Buckingham communities! Visit tinyurl.com/BuckinghamHearing.
