Atlantic Coast Pipeline Problems Persist Despite Supreme Court Decision

www.southernenvironment.org)WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a lower court decision that limited the U.S. Forest Service’s authority to issue a permit to the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP). The original ruling by the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals stated the Forest Service lacked authority to grant approval for Dominion and Duke Energy’s pipeline to cross the Appalachian Trail on federal land. The Fourth Circuit also vacated the Forest Service permit on other grounds not addressed by today’s decision, and the pipeline still lacks that permit in addition to several other approvals required for construction. 

Atlantic Coast Pipeline Confronts Its Expiration Dat

Washington, DC— Today the Southern Environmental Law Center, joined by partners at Appalachian Mountain Advocates, the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, and the law firm Johns & Counsel, opposed Dominion Energy and Duke Energy’s request for two additional years to build the risky and unnecessary Atlantic Coast Pipeline. The filing, made with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on behalf of multiple conservation groups and landowners, implores the Commission to deny an extension for a pipeline that does not fit the changing energy landscape of Virginia or North Carolina.

Atlantic Coast Pipeline Could Generate $25m in Annual Property Taxes

Property taxes paid to counties and municipalities by the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline would exceed $25 million a year, according to the energy companies that want to build it. The pipeline would extend about 550 miles in West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina to bring natural gas for power generation, homes and businesses. Dominion plans to build and operate the natural gas pipeline pending regulatory approval for a four-member joint venture that includes Atlanta-based AGL Resources, Duke Energy, and Piedmont Natural Gas. If approved by federal regulators, construction would start in 2016 with service projected to begin by late 2018. (Source: www.paradigmtax.com)
