Nov. 09, 2020: Mountain Valley Pipeline is seeking approval to plow a 42-inch natural gas climate wrecking pipeline through 3.5 miles of our life-sustaining national forest. The Jefferson National Forest Plan would need to be amended to allow this intrusion. Just because FERC rubberstamps projects does not mean that the Forest Service has to go along with the destruction.
The U.S. Forest Service 1) must not approve amending the 11 Forest Plan standards; 2) must not issue a concurrence letter to BLM for the Right of Way; and 3) must not adopt the FERC FEIS. As stewards of our national forests, the Forest Service must approve Alternative 1 - the no action alternative.
