Other Pipeline Projects in Virginia

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

Three recent pipeline and compressor station projects have been announced and are now under review by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The projects are located in Southside and Southeast Virginia and are related to expansion of existing pipelines.

The proposed routes for the projects travel through areas with existing pollution, inadequate infrastructure, failing sewer storage and often, strains on existing water resources. The increased gas capacity traveling through the pipe would mean increased greenhouse gas emissions in areas already suffering from significant climate change impacts.
