CTA: Tell Jim Justice to Say NO to 38 miles of Mountaintop Removal!

Call to Action: Save Our WV Mountains!

Take TWO minutes! A briefing paper released just today (PDF) reveals more horrors from the construction of the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP):
“Dominion would require mountaintops to be ‘reduced’ by 10 to 60 feet along the proposed route of the pipeline. For perspective, the height equivalent of a five-story building would be erased in places from fully forested and ancient mountains… Dominion has yet to reveal how it intends to dispose of 247,000 dump-truck-loads of excess rock and soil—known as ‘overburden’—that will accumulate from the construction along just these 38 miles of ridgetops.”

What to do:

Let Jim Justice know you want the WV DEP to say NO to 38 miles of mountaintop removal, 19 of which would occur in WV, from the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.
