Too Wild to Drill!

Today the Wilderness Society issued a report that Highlighted the 15 most at risk WILD PLACES most at risk from Fossil Fuel industry and infrastructure. The AT Crossing by the MVP on Peters Mountain in Monroe County is one of those places.

West Virginia DEP Withdraws MVP Permit

Last Thursday, September 7, the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) cancelled the certification they had previously issued for the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) to cross over 600 streams and rivers.

Craig County water supply is at risk

Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) is on the verge of being given the right to eminent domain to take private property from law-abiding citizens. Full approval of this project will require the complicit participation and explicit actions of at least three federal and two state agencies.

Sustaining the Quality of Life We Value

MVP may be able to engineer a pipeline that traverses these slopes, but the CONSTRUCTION will lead to DESTRUCTION. There is no possible mitigation of loss of a spring, or of placing a huge diversion ditch that will draw all the water down to the bottom of these valleys and into our waterways.

Protect our precious water resources

DEQ’s published mission is to protect our precious water resources. If they really do their job, they must deny these permits and stop this devastating project from harming Craig County and our region.
