Judges in Richmond have thrown out a key permit for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. Environmental groups are celebrating the decision as a big victory, but Dominion Energy says they plan to keep building anyway.
A federal appellate court vacated a key permit granted to the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, saying Tuesday that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service provided no specific limits for the allowable impact on threatened and endangered species.
Environmentalists dropped off 10,000 petition signatures to the Governor’s office Tuesday, demanding he call for a more stringent environmental review for the Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast Pipelines.
