Cannonsburg, PA – The Mountain Valley Pipeline announced today that it is delaying completion of the project to 2023, increasing the project’s cost to US$6.6 billion, and seeking new permits in a conference call with financial analysts.
Roberta Bondurant, Bent Mountain resident and Co-Chair of the Protect Our Water, Heritage, Rights Coalition (POWHR) responded:
“No one is surprised that the Mountain Valley Pipeline has been delayed and is over budget yet again. The MVP is a dying project that is sucking the life out of the environment and our communities to postpone its final demise. The MVP must admit its final defeat immediately, rather than continuing to seek new permits and waste the precious time we have left to address the climate crisis. The national movement to stop MVP has fought this pipeline for nearly a decade and we will continue to fight it until our communities are safe from its needless destruction.”
