The proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline would be a 600-mile long natural gas pipeline that meanders from West Virginia, through Virginia and into North Carolina. The 42-inch wide pipeline was proposed by a partnership among Dominion Resources, Duke Energy and Southern Gas Co. on September 2, 2014. The proposed route has not yet been approved. Currently, both supporters and opponents are waiting on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to release its final environmental impact statement in June.
This website explores the social, environmental and economic impacts the project will have on rural Appalachian Virginia. Walk the pipeline with us below.
