ACP Water/Wetlands Hearings July 18, 20

The Upcoming “401” Permit Hearings–A Critical Opportunity to Protect NC Waters and Wetlands
(Possibly Even to Stop the Atlantic Coast Pipeline)
Comment period goes through August 19th

Atlantic Coast Pipeline Public Hearings on Water Impacts

  • July 18th, Fayetteville, 6:00 pm, Fayetteville Tech Community College, 2201 Hull Road. Cumberland Auditorium. Signup begins at 5:00 pm.
  • July 20th, Rocky Mount, 6:00 pm, Nash Community College, 522 N. Old Carriage Road. Brown Auditorium. Signup begins at 5:00 pm.

Of all of the state permits that a gas pipeline must receive before a final “certification” can be granted by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, none is more critical than the “401 Water Quality Certification.” This permit would certify that the NC Division of Water Resources believes that the permit, as written, will protect NC’s waters and wetlands, and the aquatic and human life that depend on them! After extensive review of large permit files, a collaborative team from several organizations has found major flaws in the draft permit.

Please speak out at one of the hearings above, or submit written comments by August 19, to prevent a permit that would let ACP degrade our resources and put Environmental Justice at risk! You do not have to live in the counties along the pipeline route to participate in this process.

Here are some talking points to give you some ideas for your own comments. Written comments may be sent to: 401 Permitting, 1617 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, NC, 27699-1617, or emailed to PublicComments@ncdenr.gov (include “ACP” in the email’s subject line).
