West Virginia DEP lifts suspension of Mountain Valley pipeline permit

Thursday, November 9, 2017 by


The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection recently lifted the suspension of a permit for EQT’s Mountain Valley Pipeline project, according to The Exponent Telegram. The stormwater permit in question was suspended in September to give the state agency time to respond to public comments regarding the matter.

The DEP has also chosen to waive the individual 401 certifications of the federal permits for the project.

The Mountain Valley Pipeline will stretch 300 miles from northwestern West Virginia to southern Virginia. It will be used to carry natural gas from the Marcellus and Utica shale plays to markets in the Mid-Atlantic and South Atlantic regions.
