NC Denies Key Permit for MVP Southgate!

The permit was denied outright in August 2020, meaning there were no conditions under which Mountain Valley Pipeline (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.” MVP is appealing this decision to deny the permit, and HRA is supporting the state’s decision. More recently, decisions by Virginia’s DEQ and FERC have halted work on the the main Moutain Valley Pipeline. Read more about MVP Southgate HERE
