The 300+ miles of the Mountain Valley Pipeline would threaten over 1,000 waterways and wetlands between northwestern West Virginia and southern Virginia. The pipelines 2 billion cubic feet of gas per day would directly compromise three major aquifers, two public water supplies, numerous private drinking wells, and cross 377 perennial waterbodies, many of those being right here in Virginia.
