Dominion Announces Maryland Compressor Station Will Not Be Built

On October 15, 2018, AMP Creeks Council in southern Maryland announced that Dominion has issued a statement saying it will not be building the compressor station for the Charles County Marshall Hall site for its Eastern Maryland Access Project.

This is encouraging news as we continue the fight against the ACP’s proposed compressor station in Union Hill!

Dominion’s statement says, “Dominion Energy will not construct a natural gas transmission compressor station at its Charles County Marshall Hall site. We will continue our existing operations at that site, which consist of a field office, a warehouse, and pipeline inspection and safety-related equipment. We are actively evaluating alternatives for this component of our Eastern Market Access project. This requires the engagement of multiple stakeholders, as successful solutions must meet the needs of the project’s customers. Discussions with customers are ongoing.”

The AMP Creek Council’s Web page says, “The AMP Creeks Council – together with We Are Cove Point, SEED, Community of Communities, Maryland Environmental Health Network, and others – will continue to fight this project wherever it rears its ugly head, but today we’re celebrating, and we hope you will too. Thank you to the great many people who worked so hard to get us this far. It is an astonishing victory.”
