In Response to the Release of the Final Environmental Impact Statement for the Mountain Valley Pipeline

Date Published: Jun 23, 2017

Statement from Ron Tipton, President & CEO of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy

Washington regulators are rushing to approve a proposed route for the Mountain Valley Pipeline, which would permanently damage the Appalachian Trail. There are much better ways to bring natural gas to Virginia without harming one of America’s most popular national park units, impacting tourism or contaminating the local drinking water.

We urge the public to voice their concerns by visiting appalachiantrail.org/MVP.
