Alert: Gas Pipeline Projects
Atlantic Coast & Mountain Valley Gas Pipelines
As an organization, the VSS has not issued a formal statement, or agreed on a stand, for/against the proposed natural gas pipeline projects. At this point, we are focused on providing accurate and complete information on the caves and karst resources that might be impacted by the projects, if they are built.
