The Honorable Governor Terry McAuliffe
1111 East Broad Street
Richmond, VA 23219
We, the undersigned, urge you to ensure that your administration adequately reviews all water quality threats posed by the Mountain Valley Pipeline and Atlantic Coast Pipeline in detailed, individual regulatory processes. Water quality certifications for each of these projects must denied unless Virginia can provide assurance that all state standards will be met.
The current proposal by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality to exclude reviews of waterbody crossing impacts from the individual Clean Water Act section 401 reviews for each project is improper and unacceptable and must be rejected.
