Another Pipeline Victory for North Carolina – MVP Southgate Permit Denied!

The cancelling of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) in July was a major win for thousands of eastern North Carolinians, and we celebrated another victory this month when the NC Dept. of Environmental Quality (DEQ) denied the Mountain Valley Pipeline Southgate extension’s 401 Water Quality Permit!

Clean Water for NC signs on to the Unity Banner – a project designed to connect communities and organizations in both VA and NC fighting the mainline Mountain Valley Pipeline and the Southgate extension. Rachel and Hope of Clean Water were hosting the banner signing when the news came in that NC DEQ denied Southgate’s water quality permit!

The proposed pipeline would have cut through Rockingham and Alamance Counties and caused irreparable damage to our waterways and environment, used eminent domain against our community members, and tied us to a dying fossil fuel economy for decades. Many of the same organizations throughout North Carolina who fought effortlessly against the ACP are now joining with impacted landowners, our ally groups, including The Haw River Assembly, Appalachian Voices, Sierra Club, and many others to celebrate DEQ’s decision on denying the pipeline’s construction through our fragile waterways and drinking water sources.

The recent ACP and MVP Southgate victories are true David and Goliath stories – landowners, communities, and grassroots organizations worked for years to stand up to Duke Energy, Dominion Energy, and Equitrans to protect our environment, property rights, drinking water, and climate. 

Congratulations to all who fought effortless on fighting both the Atlantic Coast Pipeline and MVP Southgate Extension. We did it – Together!
