Atlantic Coast Pipeline has commented on the unanimous approval by the Virginia state air pollution control board:

“The recent unanimous approval is a significant step forward for this transformational project and the final state approval needed in Virginia. We commend the Board members and Virginia DEQ staff for the months of hard work and careful study they dedicated to reviewing this permit. We also appreciate the thoughtful input provided by members of the public.

“This permit is the most stringent air permit with the strongest environmental protections of any compressor station in the country. As a result of the permit’s strict conditions and the unprecedented protections we’ve put in place, most air emissions at the station will be 50 - 80% lower than any other compressor station in Virginia.

While the approval process has concluded, we know we have to continue building trust in the community. It will begin with the investments we’re making in a new community centre and rescue squad, but it will not end there. We have a profound respect for this community and its history, and we will continue working together to build a better future.”
