Scientists have long warned that all construction projects take their toll on underground water resources. Now a water geologist from West Virginia says, planned construction of the Mountain Valley Pipeline, through Appalachian mountain Ridges, could cause major problems for one of the country’s most important water resources.   

Virginia’s Department of Environmental Quality is holding hearings around central Virginia this week and next.  It is seeking public comment on two natural gas pipelines proposed for the state and what their effect might be on water resources.

The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality will hear comments at locations around the state this month, on proposed water protection standards for 2 natural gas pipelines slated for Virginia. Pipeline opponents are looking to the DEQ as their last hope to have their concerns about the projects heard. 

  The Virginia Supreme Court has ruled in favor of the company developing the Atlantic Coast Pipeline in a lawsuit against a woman who sought to keep surveyors off her property.
