Tell the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers & U.S. Forest Service: No permits for MVP!

Your comment will be submitted to the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers:

We strongly urge the USFS and Army Corps of Engineers to prevent unnecessary damage to Jefferson National Forest and reject MVP’s 404 permit request.

Allowing the Forest Service to break 11 of its own rules to accommodate Mountain Valley Pipeline, LLC, sets an alarming precedent for similar rule-breaking on national forests across the country. These exceptions run counter to the Forest Service’s mandate to “sustain healthy, diverse and productive forests and grasslands for present and future generations.”

We implore the U.S. Forest Service to select Alternative (1) “No Action” and reject the proposed 11 changes.

Additionally, we are concerned that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has not sufficiently evaluated the impact of permanent and temporary discharges of dredged and fill material into streams and wetlands resulting from MVP, LLC’s construction activities.

We believe the serious, cumulative potential negative impacts to water resources and our climate from this project far outweigh any potential benefits and that the project is adverse to the public interest.

We again ask that the Corps deny this 404 permit requested by Mountain Valley Pipeline, LLC.

Thank you.

    The Mountain Valley Pipeline still lacks permission to cross hundreds of waterways along its proposed pipeline route — but the pipeline developers have submitted new filings to attempt to obtain a 404 Clean Water Act permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

    Tell the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers: Deny MVP's permit and protect our waters, lands, and climate!

    Additionally, the U.S. Forest Service has opened up a public comment period on their new Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) after old permits for MVP were twice denied in court. But nothing has changed this time – and rules shouldn't be broken for MVP — changing the rules for corporate profit is not acceptable.

    Add your name and tell the U.S. Forest Service to reject any proposed changes for MVP and protect our lands!
