Simulated View of MVP from Appalachian Trail

MOUNTAIN VALLEY PIPELINE – The 401 Permit Application for Construction has been filed with WV-DEP. Comments may be made any time.  The 401 Certification is required to permit the entry to or crossing of streams where stream flows may be interrupted and/or sediment, subsidence or dissolved chemicals may affect the stream.


 The 401 certification for the Mountain Valley Pipeline has not yet been issued or denied. Public comments are still being accepted and can be emailed to: DEP.comments@wv.gov.

They can also be mailed to the WV-DEP headquarters, the address is below. There may be a public hearing or hearings, but nothing has been scheduled yet.

Two excellent sources of information on negative impacts of Mountain Valley Pipeline.

1. APPALACHIAN TRAIL CONSERVANCY had a whole new web page, with easy to use letters and links. https://www.appalachiantrail.org/home/conservation/advocacy/conservation-current-issues-full-story/advocacy—current-issues/2016/11/18/mountain-valley-pipeline-project-threatens-ecosystems-and-landscape-of-virginia-and-west-virginia 

2. New blog on APPALACHIAN TRIALS (note spelling) a widely read online source among AT hikers has lots of details about negative impacts of MVP
