Pipeline Suffers Setback

(RICHMOND) — There’s more problems with the Mountain Valley Pipeline.

Regulators in Virginia are citing the project for environmental violations they say include the improper release of sediment into area waterways. The Department of Environmental Quality issued a notice of violation to the natural gas pipeline.

Other alleged violations include failing to follow approved erosion and sediment control plans. It could result in civil fines. Pipeline officials say they are working on the fixes now.
