US Forest Service Accuses Atlantic Coast Pipeline of MisrepresentationPosted: Updated: Nov 20, 2015 05:23 PM
The United States Forest Service is getting in the middle of the battle over the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline.
In a letter to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or FERC, the Forest Service says Dominion and its partners haven't followed the rules for surveying.
It now says any soil surveys conducted prior to Nov. 5 are discredited and should be rejected. The Forest Service says those surveys should play a major role in route selection.
FERC has final say on whether the pipeline becomes a reality, or not.
