NC Denies Key Permit for MVP Southgate!

Thanks to all of you who told the state to deny the 401 permit that would have let MVP destroy miles of streams in the Haw River watershed through Alamance and Rockingham counties!

The permit was denied outright, meaning there were no conditions under which MVP Southgate could make corrections and resubmit. NCDEQ’s denial letter focused predominantly on the failures of the MVP mainline through WVA and Virginia. “The uncertainty of the MVP Mainline Project’s completion presents a critical risk to the achievability of the fundamental purpose of MVP Southgate ……it is inappropriate to unnecessarily risk impacting high-quality waters and drinking water supplies of North Carolinians.”
