West Virginia Debuts Webpage on Pipeline Projects

Information available on the page includes maps of the proposed pipeline routes and a link to WVDEP's searchable online database where additional information, such as any inspection and enforcement actions and any permit modifications, can be found.

The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP) announced April 2 it has launched a webpage designed to help state residents learn more about five major natural gas pipeline projects that are either proposed or already under construction. The five pipelines are the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, Mountain Valley Pipeline, the Mountaineer Gas Company Eastern Panhandle Expansion Project, Mountaineer Xpress Pipeline, and the Rover Pipeline.

"We are making sure that anyone who has any questions about these pipelines can find those answers on one easy-to-use webpage," said WVDEP Cabinet Secretary Austin Caperton. "People who live near these projects deserve to be able to find answers to their questions quickly, and WVDEP is providing this new webpage to help them do that."

Information available on the page includes maps of the proposed pipeline routes and a link to WVDEP's searchable online database where additional information, such as any inspection and enforcement actions and any permit modifications, can be found. Also available are public hearing transcripts, responses to comments received at public hearings, and press releases about the pipelines. The page will be updated as more information on each pipeline becomes available, and residents will be able to submit reports of possible permit violations via the page.
