In the Path of the Pipeline: C’ta DeLaurier

Dominion and Duke Energy will use eminent domain to take private property from landowners along the 600-mile route of the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline. In a new video from the Southern Environmental Law Center we hear the comments of C’ta DeLaurier, one of the people in the path of the pipeline. “This is just a land grab for a privately owned utility,” says DeLaurier. As the video reminds us, “Dominion and Duke Energy shareholders are guaranteed a 14% rate of return on their investment in the Atlantic Coast Pipeline from the federal government. This amount of guaranteed money isn’t available anywhere – not even on Wall Street.”
