More protests against the Atlantic Coast Pipeline

By  | 

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- "We are nowhere finished" is what a spokesperson for the Friends of Nelson County says regarding efforts to stop the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline.

Connie Brennan is talking about opposition to the 600-mile Atlantic Coast Pipeline, which will run through Nelson County.

Despite the preliminary go ahead, Dominion Energy still faces lots of pipeline opposition with groups saying the project remains a major threat to the environment.

Brennan, a former Nelson County supervisor, says there are more protests planned against the pipeline.

"There are many more, there are lots of requests for rehearings, on challenging some of the issues that are still out there, there are lawsuits coming fast and furious," she said.

She also says eminent domain is going to generate a lot of lawsuits, because people are not just going to hand over their land to a private corporation for its own greed.
