Become an Intervenor

Friends of Nelson strongly encourages landowners on the route to register as “intervenors.” It is really important. We also encourage anyone who may be “materially” affected to register – this includes neighbors who could find themselves on the route due to adjustments or who are in the blast zone, community members who fear their well or spring may be impacted by nearby blasting or far away sediment pollution, business owners who may face reduced revenues due to construction traffic, or permanent losses for any reason.

Intervening carries with it certain rights and responsibilities. You can learn more here.

WIld Virginia has produced an excellent document on why and how to file with FERC as an intervenor, complete with step-by-step instructions.  Click here to read, download, or print this useful document.

There will be a workshop for potential intervenors on Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2-7 p.m., at Nelson Memorial Library in Lovingston. You can drop in anytime. Ernie Reed, who has intervened several times on other projects, will be there to answer questions and to help you register right then and there.
