Protect Our Air Our Lives Phone & Text Bank Party
Mountain Valley Pipeline or MVP, a proposed 303 mile fracked gas pipeline being constructed from West Virginia into Virginia, is attempting to get approval for a 70 mile extension into North Carolina. MVP has submitted an air permit for a proposed Lambert Compressor Station. This polluting station would be located in the Bannister Community of Pittsylvania County, where multiple greenhouse-gas emitting stations are already located. The permit does not appropriately consider environmental justice, hazardous air pollutants, nor the cumulative health impacts from the existing infrastructure in the area. MVP has and would continue to bring harmful impacts to air and water quality and community health. The State Air Pollution Control Board will consider the permit at its upcoming meeting on December 2nd and 3rd in Chatham VA.
To protect our air we are calling and texting community members to talk to them about the health and safety of their communities and asking them to come together on November 27th at Protect Our Air Our Lives, to learn more about MVP and how to get involved to stop it!
