Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley Pipelines
Call Governor McAuliffe to stop the Atlantic Coast Pipeline!
VAIPL joined others in peaceful testimony and prayer at the DEQ’s public hearing on the Atlantic Coast Pipeline on Monday, August 7 at James Madison University in Harrisonburg. The hearing was a chance for the public to speak up about this pipeline’s impact on water quality conditions. The pipeline will cross countless rivers and streams, including the headwaters of six major water basins.
Before the hearing, Walking the Line: Into the Heart of Virginia performed a water ritual incorporating song and silence. VAIPL offered prayers during those moments of silence. Check out photos and videos of the vigil and hearing testimony on our Facebook page.
