FOW Letter to FERC — May 25, 2017

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.

Pipeline A Drag On Wintergreen Property Values

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+%.

Any other geological components of importance in the areas involved, such as any underground rivers or springs? My concern is the disruption of any of these( as well as the fault) with the blasting that will be done. Too much at risk here.

Are you aware there is a fault line that runs thru this area called The Rockfish Valley Fault Line? Wouldn’t this be considered “unstable” for the construction of a pipeline?

Just a belated thought: why not substantially remove the WG entrance up hill from where it forks off of the main road. It would then be out of the way and could be designed as a distraction, to be pretty welcoming and special.
