VA Water Board Considers Revoking MVP Water Quality Permit

A year ago, in December 2017, Virginia’s Water Control Board issued a water permit/certification for the Mountain Valley Pipeline project–a $3.5 billion, 301-mile pipeline that will run from Wetzel County, WV to the Transco Pipeline in Pittsylvania County, VA (see Virginia Water Board Approves Mountain Valley Pipe – Antis Erupt). At least one anti-fossil fueler at that meeting “screamed profanities at the board members and vowed to visit them where they live.” Violent people. Since that time other required permits have been issued and MVP is now, as of the end of 2018, 70% done being built (see Shocker: Mountain Valley Pipeline Now 70% Built, Online by 4Q19). Even so, there are still some major hurdles to overcome. Virginia’s liberal Democrat Attorney General last week filed a lawsuit against MVP alleging the project has violated Virginia environmental regulations some 300 times (see Virginia AG Sues Mountain Valley Pipeline re “300 Violations”). In light of the AG’s lawsuit, the VA Water Control Board is now threatening to revoke the permit they issued last year.
