Two members of the Norfolk/Hampton Roads Team, Team Leader Kim Williams and Theresa "Nia" Amoruso were interviewed and featured in a recent article in the local news site Southside Daily. They are speaking out against the proposed pipeline that will plow through parts of Suffolk. This pipeline threatens parks and water reservoirs along the proposed path.
“An active member of Mothers Out Front – an organization that exists in part to “influence decision-makers to make a swift and just transition from fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy” – [Theresa] Amoruso spoke quickly, even after the three-minute buzzer that alerted her time was up.
‘The city of Norfolk and other regulators agree that boring pipelines under our priceless reservoirs cannot be assessed as completely safe, only as low-risk,’ Amoruso said, citing language used by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission pipeline project assessment. ‘Why is any level of risk acceptable to our priceless water supply?’”
