Two large, interstate pipelines are being proposed to transport natural gas from the Marcellus shale operations in northwestern West Virginia to major interconnector lines in Virginia. In the case of one (Mountain Valley Pipeline), the pipeline is expected to be 42 inches in diameter, capable of transporting 2 billion cubic feet of gas per day. It would require 75 feet of permanent easement, with 125 feet easements for construction. This pipeline has NOT been approved yet. It is at the beginning of an extensive review process by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

 About Preserve Monroe:

Preserve Monroe is a coalition of landowners, residents, businesses and organizations in Monroe County, WV. Preserve Monroe encourages citizens to participate in the responsible stewardship of our resources and to actively oppose projects that threaten the healthy and prosperous future of Monroe County and our families.

Preserve Monroe opposes the attempt by private corporations to build large, 42-inch interstate transmission pipelines through our county. These pipelines would cut across our mountains, streams and farmlands carrying natural gas to points east and overseas. We are united by concern that these large excavation and construction projects—as well as the long-term presence of high-pressure gas pipelines of this magnitude—are a very real threat to our water, to our families and community, and to our property values and landowner rights.

Preserve Monroe welcomes all who love Monroe County. Please join us.
