Gulf South 30 inch Pipeline (1-14-15)

Open Public Meetings Set for Upshur and Lewis Counties for Information & Legal Advice

From April Keating, Mountain Lakes Preservation Alliance, Upshur County, WV

The Mountain Lakes Preservation Alliance and the Greenbrier River Watershed Association are  sponsoring public meetings regarding the several large pipelines proposed to cross many West Virginia counties.

Counties to be affected are: Wetzel, Braxton, Lewis, Webster, Doddridge, Harrison, Upshur, Randolph, Pocahontas, Greenbrier, and Monroe County residents.

These meetings are designed to provide additional information to that provided by the industry open-house meetings. Topics to consider include water quality, public safety, property rights, property values, emergency response, inspections, public health, and public policy. Expert presenters will follow with a Question and Answer session.

Whether you have received a survey letter, are a public official, or simply a concerned citizen, you are encouraged to attend. These decisions made now could affect many generations of West Virginians for years to come.

xxx – Saturday, February 21 at 1 PM at the Rock Cave Fire Hall, Upshur County, WV — Cancelled on account of snow weather forecast.
