Still considering water quality

Pictured is an area along the route of the Mountain Valley Pipeline near U.S. 19 in Braxton County damaged by flooding in early June. Opponents of the pipeline say it exacerbates flooding in the area. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has granted West Virginia and Virginia environmental regulators more time to review Mountain Valley’s request for key water permit approval.

West Virginia and Virginia state environmental regulators have gotten what they asked for.

That means Mountain Valley Pipeline developers will have to wait longer for what they’ve requested.
