21 Virginia Legislators Send Letter to DEQ Director Paylor, Call for Immediate Order of Compliance with Erosion and Sediment Controls for Mountain Valley Pipeline


From Del. Chris Hurst (D-HD12) and “more than 20 of my General Assembly colleagues” (Delegates Charniele Herring, Alfonso Lopez, Kaye Kory, Sam Rasoul, John Bell, Danica Roem, Mark Keam, Patrick Hope, Debra Rodman, Karrie Delaney, Dawn Adams, Kelly Convirs-Fowler, Paul Krizek, Vivian Watts, Ibraheem Samirah, Lee Carter, Jennifer Carroll-Foy; Senators John Edwards, Creigh Deeds, Adam Ebbin):

“This week, more than 20 of my General Assembly colleagues and I sent a letter to DEQ Director David Paylor calling for the Department to immediately issue orders of compliance with erosion and sediment control regulations for the Mountain Valley Pipeline project. This call comes after violations of erosion and sediment control requirements continue to be reported to DEQ. Thank you so much to the co-signers who stand with me, my constituents, and landowners in the fight to stop this dangerous and unnecessary pipeline project. Check out the letter below.”
