Governor Northam and VADEQ: Make MVP Hearings Safe and Accessible

Today 39 groups and 151 individuals sent a letter to Virginia Governor Ralph Northam and Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) Director David Paylor to urge the agency to allow for a virtual participation option for the upcoming DEQ hearings before the State Water Control Board on Mountain Valley Pipeline’s Clean Water Act Section 401 Water Protection Permit.

Comment on MVP 401 Permit

In March 2021 Mountain Valley Pipeline submitted an application for construction in wetlands and across stream crossings in the remaining portions of the project. Virginia DEQ has prepared a draft Virginia Water Protection (VWP) permit and a technical factsheet. If issued, the permit will serve as Virginia’s Clean Water Act Section 401 Water Quality Certification.
