Hearings on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the Mountain Valley Pipeline will be held by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in Roanoke on Thursday, November 3, 2016. The hearings are an important phase in the review process for the pipeline under the National Environmental Policy Act. During these meetings, there will be opportunities to give verbal or written comments to FERC.
We will provide a welcome space for attendees to gather before and after submitting comments to FERC, with information on how to submit comments to FERC and others. Location: Mnemonic Conference Theater (adjacent to Botany Ballroom)
All community hearings begin at 4:00 PM. Official FERC listening sessions start at 5:00 pm and end by 10:00 pm. You can help by attending one of these meetings and showing your opposition to the MVP. This is your chance to submit comments and let FERC know how you feel about the pipeline coming to your community.
