July 17, 2017 - Friends of Wintergreen wrote a letter to FERC
to inform the federal agency that ACP did not provide specific responses to issues raised by the Wintergreen community, or provided vague, open-ended, non-committal “responses.” These perfunctory answers failed to address or acknowledge the unique circumstances of the Wintergreen area.
April 3, 2017 - On March 24, 2017, Friends of Wintergreen submitted a 432-page filing with FERC pointing out the deficiencies in the DEIS issued on the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. A summary
is here. The full filing with attachments
is here (and is large.)
March 15, 2017 - Friends of Wintergreen released two new geology studies
that show the land around Wintergreen is too steep and prone to erosion to support a 42-inch natural gas pipeline.
November 22, 2016 - Friends of Wintergreen filed with FERC
today asking that Wintergreen and Nelson County land be treated with the same due diligence and duty of care as the USFS demands of its land. Dominion needs to do more analysis and detailed plans.
November 19, 2016 - Friends of Wintergreen announced that the prospect of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) on Wintergreen land and in front of the only entrance and exit to the mountain resort has already depressed property values by 10% or more. This is in contrast to Dominion’s 2015 claim to county officials across the Commonwealth that “there is no consistent information suggesting the presence of a natural gas pipeline easement would decrease property values.” Real estate values elsewhere in the Commonwealth have increased by an estimated 2-5+%.
