The proposed ACP route would cut a 21-mile permanent swath through the George Washington and Monongahela National Forests. The Draft EIS prepared by FERC for the project does not provide the information needed for Forest Service decisions.
Please send in your comments to FERC and request that the Forest Service OPPOSE ANY Special Use Permit for the ACP and reject forest plan amendments. Emphasize that the DEIS is incomplete, inconsistent, and incorrect, and it does not provide adequate information for Forest Service decisions.
This story map on the 7 major Issues of the ACP route through our National Forests provides excellent background information, suggested talking points, and contact information for your comments.
