Kastning Karst Study

Kastning Report on the Geo-Hazards of the Proposed MVP (PDF Link Final July 5 2016)

The Kastning Report focuses on the Central Appalachian Region and specifically on geological hazards along the segment of MVP’s current preferred route from Monroe County, West Virginia to Roanoke County, Virginia – all of which are part of a geologic region of ridges and valleys in karst terrain. For the most part it does not address alternative routes; nor does it attempt to treat all impacted counties thoroughly or equally.  On the basis of detailed facts, published (and unpublished) research and sound logic, it concludes that the entire region should be a “No Build” zone.
