Petition asks for state administration to review pipeline projects

By  | 

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (NEWSPLEX) -- Wild Virginia is asking Governor Terry McAuliffe to review the Atlantic Coast and Mountain Valley pipeline projects.

The organization has started a petition calling for a Citizen's Advisory Panel to discuss the proposed pipelines with administration officials.

Both pipeline projects will run through U.S. National Forests in West Virginia and Virginia.

In the petition, Wild Virginia says they will "cause irreversible damage to mountain brook streams, public and private water supplies, sensitive species, and areas of great natural and historical importance."
