Sense of Place
Appalachians know a sense of place. More today, than at any time in history, people are speaking up to save the landscapes that they call home. From the First Nation’s tribes trying to halt the destruction of the world’s largest boreal forest in Canada due to Bakken Tar sands development, to the Pacific Islanders trying to save their homes from rising sea levels, people are finding the courage to speak out because of their “sense of place.”More

A “Sign” of the Times
Remember when West Virginia's small family cemeteries were considered sacred space-where our loved ones could rest in peace in the bosom of the earth? Certainly that was before the outrageous mining process known as mountaintop removal.More

Heard Rumors of Access Roads in Your Area?

If you are a pipeline builder, how do you get rid of some of the pipeline trash and some of the trees you felled for your right-of-way? Burning! We don't need this extra air pollution.More

#Fracking #Pipelines in Your Neighborhood: Muddy Stream
In comparison to the OVC, the MXP is much longer and crosses many more streams. What happened here could likely happen during stream crossing done anywhere by any pipeline company. It seems like the construction company had a significant lack of proper, accurate planning, and a total underestimation of stream flow volumes.More

#Fracking #Pipelines in Your Neighborhood: Muddy Roads

#Fracking #Pipelines in Your Neighborhood: Dusty Roads
The pipeline guys would first stop all traffic to pull out onto the roadway, then drop mud off their trucks or drag it onto the roadway where it would dry out, then they would again stop all traffic to run a power road-sweeper on the road.More

#Fracking #Pipelines in Your Neighborhood: Dirty Diesel Trucks
This extreme amount of filthy diesel fumes was absolutely unnecessary here, or anywhere. Newer trucks burn cleaner. No community resident should be subjected to getting stuck behind one of these junk trucks. Diesel fumes have known health impacts. But such is the regard of these companies for the communities they impact, and such is FERC's regard for the communities the agency subjects to these kind of impacts.More

#Fracking #Pipelines in Your Neighborhood: Traffic — What a Clustertruck!
In its MXP DEIS, FERC states that the proposed pipeline construction would only be a minor inconvenience to residents. The daily restriction of routine travel my neighbors and I experienced went way beyond minor during the 11-month-long construction period of another pipeline. Our experience completely contradicts what FERC states.More

SM-80 Pipeline Construction in Wayne County: Before and During
We have been monitoring the construction going on with the SM-80 replacement segments in both Cabell and Wayne counties. Reminder: this very old Columbia pipeline is being “renovated” in our backyards, because of Columbia’s larger (36-inch diameter) proposed pipeline—the Mountaineer Xpress—which will connect to it at a compressor station in the Milton area. The comment […]More
