Tell VA Senators: Support Virginia water protection bills!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

On Tuesday, January 19th, the Senate Agriculture, Conservation and Natural Resources committee will consider two bills which would strengthen Virginia’s ability and obligation to enforce water quality standards for fracked-gas pipelines, like the Mountain Valley Pipeline.

Take action now.

Senator Creigh Deeds has introduced SB 1265, which improves the Commonwealth’s inspection and enforcement process for gas pipelines, defines the impacts that would constitute harm to our waters, and allows for a stop work order on the full length in Virginia of a project if problems are frequent or widespread. Senator Jennifer McClellan has introduced SB 1311, which requires new erosion control plans from the pipeline companies when the plans fail, and ensures Virginia reviews proposed project changes that could hurt our waters.

Your voice is critical – please contact your Senator and ask them to SUPPORT these bills, both of which play a critical role in protecting Virginia’s water:

SB 1265 (Sen. Deeds) – Adverse impacts to water quality and stop work orders
SB 1311 (Sen. McClellan) – Pipeline Accountability, Oversight and Protection of Virginia’s Water

Thank you for your help. Take action below:
