Still facing criticism for approving a permit for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, state regulators question another project.
When Lynn and Bill Limpert bought 120 pristine acres in Virginia’s Appalachian Mountains in 2009, the only construction project they expected to handle was building their retirement home.
Citizen groups filed another lawsuit against the Atlantic Coast Pipeline Thursday, this time taking direct aim at the federal certificate that undergirds all other permits for the complex interstate gas project.
Left out of the formal permitting process, North Carolina’s Lumbee Tribe and others seek a voice before pipeline construction crosses their land and waters.
The contrast between North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper’s actions on offshore drilling and a pipeline project reflect different legal, political and economic risks.
