Natural Gas Pipeline Hits Another Barrier

NelsonCountyThe Virginia leg of a natural gas pipeline project may have hit, yet another barrier. An injunction was filed against Dominion Transmission in July in an effort to keep surveyors off Nelson County properties. That suit was resolved when Dominion agreed to postpone surveying until a court order was in place. Now, landowners are wondering if the law is even constitutional and at least five filed suit on Tuesday requesting the court review the state’s code. Dominion has 21 days to respond, then a pre-trial conference will be set. No doubt hundreds of other property owners all along the path of the proposed 550-mile pipeline, which includes 13 localities in Virginia alone, will be awaiting a ruling on the matter.
