Atlantic Coast Pipeline Project
If you own land in Nelson or Augusta counties, it’s likely that you have heard about the Atlantic Coast Pipeline proposal for a 42-inch natural gas pipeline running through Augusta and Nelson counties. There are several route alternatives. As you can see from the map below, one of the alternatives comes close to Wintergreen, passing immediately in front of the gate house at the entrance to the Mountain Resort.
Route planning will continue through June, 2015. The pipeline, to be constructed in 2017 and 2018, requires clearing a 125-foot strip of land along the pipeline. After construction, the strip is narrowed to 75 feet and seeded with grass.
The project has generated extensive controversy. Our primary interest is to make sure our clients are aware of the project and its potential impacts. We will actively keep you informed on our Facebook and Twitter pages and in our blog.
