The good news keeps coming on the journey to end the Mountain Valley Pipeline! The Fourth Circuit Court threw out MVP’s permits to cross the forest and the U.S. Wildlife permit for not doing the work to protect endangered species. Then the Army Corps of Engineers confirmed that they would NOT issue the permit for MVP to cross streams while MVP was missing these key permits. Major MVP partner, NextEra Energy’s SEC filing admitted that it’s unlikely the project will be completed, after Democratic controlled FERC passed policies to prevent duplicate pipelines and to stop self-dealing by companies to obtain a permit. Please retweet with @EquitransMid @ConEd @altagas @NextERAEnergy and @RGCResources #CancelMVP! to pressure Equitrans Midstream before their Tuesday’s earning call.
