MOVE THE PIPELINE
Our goal is to compel Dominion to build a “responsible” pipeline, one that avoids the Wintergreen area and eliminates the adverse consequences to the economy, environment and safety. To do so requires a sophisticated level of legal, environmental and engineering expertise to present fact-based analysis and solutions to the federal regulators.
Many people are overwhelmed by the technical information and short review periods the pipeline approval process entails. Many even assume it is unstoppable.
But it can be changed. Friends of Wintergreen has hired the experts, recruited volunteers, and developed a plan to achieve this goal. And to date we have had successes with FERC. But this is not over yet.
There are two ways to give: online or by mail. Contribution are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.

Send A Letter
Political leaders and federal regulators really do pay attention to letters and email from the public. Numbers count. The more letters they receive, the greater our chance of success. We have created a simplified, automated process to send an email to your elected officials and others. Even send an email directly to Dominion’s CEO.
Sign Our Petition
Sign a petition to Chairman Norman Bay of FERC to oppose the pipeline route near Wintergreen , evaluate alternate routes, including those proposed by Friends of Wintergreen, existing easements or co-locating with similar new pipelines now being planned.
Moving a pipeline is a team “sport”. You can also help yourself and your neighbors by staying up to date on the current news (via Facebook, our website or meetings) and getting your friends and neighbors involved in the cause. Here are a few links to get you started.
