MVP Misconceptions

Knock'EmDownPhoto (1)Our friends at Preserve Montgomery County, VA will have a booth at Summer Solstice Fest in Blacksburg on Saturday, June 20th.  Stop by to learn more about the Mountain Valley Pipeline, get involved in the opposition and let out your frustrations by playing the “Knock ‘Em Down” game (yes, you can throw something at MVP and not get into trouble).  They have prepared a brief document about misconceptions people still have about the Mountain Valley Pipeline — see http://preservethenrv.com/docs/MVPmisconceptions.pdf.  Feel free to share this as there many people in the New River Valley and beyond who still have very little knowledge of the MVP and the negative impact it will have on all of us.

Final Days to Submit Scoping Comments to the FERC

noMVPDespite all of our calls and letters to the FERC, it still appears that the official FERC Scoping Period will end next Tuesday, June 16th.

If you have anything to say about the impact the MVP would have on your property or our region, please contact the FERC before June 16th. Even if you have submitted a comment before, please consider doing so again. For more details about how to submit your comments, visit our Federal Energy Regulatory Commission page.  For information on scoping, visit: http://preservethenrv.com/d…/navigating_scoping_meetings.pdf (while this page was developed with the scoping meetings in mind, it addresses the types of things that can be included in written scoping comments to the FERC).

Landowners on all routes: It is particularly critical that you submit scoping comments to FERC! They need to hear from you. Let the FERC know that you will NOT work with MVP and they will have to pursue eminent domain to put a pipeline on your property. If the FERC knows that the majority of landowners will not negotiate with MVP, it can directly impact the review process (see http://www.lancasterpipeline.org/eminent-domain).
