Virginia Pipeline Construction Projects Must Have Additional Certifications

The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality today announced that in addition to utilizing the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers nationwide permit 12 for wetland and stream crossings, they will require individual 401 water quality certifications for the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley pipeline projects.

According to Bill Hayden, a Virginia Department of Environmental Quality spokesman, the agency will hold hearings that give the public an opportunity to review and comment on these certifications, and once the comment period has finished the proposed final certifications will be brought before the State Water Control Board.
