Your comments needed by June 22! The Mountain Valley Pipeline has applied for a Water Quality Certification from the WV Department of Environmental Protection. This permit is required by Section 401 of the Clean Water Act to ensure that a project can meet water quality standards. The WVDEP has the authority to approve, approve with special conditions, or deny MVP’s application.

We urge you to contact the WVDEP today. Tell them MVP’s water quality certification should be denied.

The Mountain Valley Pipeline would impact 4.2 miles of streams and 12.4 acres of wetlands in West Virginia. MVP’s construction has already violated water quality standards in approximately 50 streams and wetlands. WVDEP has fined MVP on two separate occasions totaling over $500,000 for their negligent construction practices which created conditions not allowable in waters of the state. Tell WVDEP to protect our water resources from this proven disaster of a project and deny MVP’s application.

Act Now
