Opportunity to comment on DEP Consent Order on Stonewall Gathering Pipeline

For everyone who has followed and documented the state of affairs during construction of the Momentum Stonewall gathering pipeline, you should cut and paste this link included in this public notice:(http://www.dep.wv.gov/pio/Pages/Settlements,Ordersouttopublicnotice.aspx )

Please check the violations DEP issued for the pipeline and the penalties they have recommended for those violations.

This shows how they will approach violations during the construction of the MVP and ACP lines and so is important that we voice our approval/concerns/objections to the evaluations via Stonewall in that it sets precedent for all that follow.

Comments about this Consent Order will be accepted til June 19th.



The WV Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP) and Stonewall Gas
Gathering LLC have proposed a settlement of Administrative Consent Order No. MM-
16-11 which resolves violation(s) of the WV Water Pollution Control Act and the
WV Solid Waste Management Act which occurred in Harrison County, WV.  In
accordance with the proposed Consent Order, Stonewall Gas Gathering LLC has
agreed to pay administrative penalties and to comply with the Acts. 

Final settlement is subject to comments received during the thirty (30) day period
ending June 19, 2016.  Further information about this Administrative Consent
Order is available by contacting the Chief Inspector, WVDEP/Environmental
