Natural gas pipeline builder announces route changes

The Associated Press

Energy companies behind the Atlantic Coast Pipeline are proposing changes in the route of the proposed 564-mile natural gas pipeline.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Energy companies behind the Atlantic Coast Pipeline are proposing changes in the route of the proposed 564-mile natural gas pipeline.

In a filing Friday with federal regulators, Dominion Energy said the changes would reduce the potential impacts on salamander habitats in the Monongahela National Forest in West Virginia and the George Washington National Forest in Virginia. The latter would involve burrowing beneath Shenandoah Mountain.

Dominion also said it is proposing an alternative to avoid crossing the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. The change was made at the request of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Dominion is partnering with Duke Energy and others to build the $5.1 billion pipeline from West Virginia and through Virginia and North Carolina.

The pipeline would deliver natural gas to the Southeast.
