Air Pollution Control Board Hearing

November 8 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

Air Pollution Control Board meeting on the draft air permit for the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline compressor station in Union Hill.  The hearing will be held at the Greater Richmond Convention Center, Exhibit Hall Building, Level 2, Room E21-AB, 301 N. 3rd Street, Richmond, Virginia 23219.

We hope this citizen board will listen to citizens instead of the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality officials.  And we hope the Air Pollution Control Board understands their duties and their powers – unlike the State Water Control Board, whose chair said after their meeting that he did not know or understand that the SWCB could turn down the permit for the ACP!

Pre-meeting press conference:  Water Is Life. Protect It. invites all those concerned with environmental justice to join us in Richmond at 8 am on November 8 for a “We Are All Union Hill” press conference at Third Street Bethel A.M.E. Church and for the VA Air Pollution Control Board Meeting: Buckingham Air Permit at the Greater Richmond Convention Center at 9 am both November 8 & 9. At stake: the future of Union Hill, our planet and the viability and integrity of the Democratic Party of Virginia. Again, the vast and diverse community resisting the corrupt robbery of the Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast fracked gas pipelines thanks Jonathan Sokolow and Blue Virginia for consistent, accurate and telling coverage of this issue.
