Long-haul fight for a healthy future.
This 42-inch natural gas “mega-pipeline” project carves a 200-mile scar across rugged terrain in West Virginia, clear-cutting and trenching through forested ridges, steep slopes, karst terrain and hundreds of streams and wetlands.

Indian Creek Watershed Association pipeline statement:
Indian Creek Watershed Association is very concerned about the impact of the two proposed pipelines on the water and watershed areas. The large size and scale of the pipes and required easement corridors; the numerous stream crossings, including in sensitive limestone and karst areas; and the erosion and run-off from vertical cuts over ridges and Peters Mountain—all of these put our watersheds at serious risk and threaten the quality of life unique to Monroe County. There must be a very transparent review and decision-making process that both solicits and takes into consideration the concerns of everyone affected.
As the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) considers its environmental impact study of the proposed Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) routes, Indian Creek Watershed Association continues to help Monroe County landowners gather information that they can use to protect our environment and culture.
Additionally, ICWA continues to file comments at the FERC, the Jefferson National Forest, the WV Department of Environmental Protection, and the Bureau of Land Management to oppose the MVP crossing Monroe County waters.
