DEQ Takes Enforcement Action Against MVP

DEQ has issued a Notice of Violation for alleged violations for failing to take corrective actions within required timeframes, failure to install (and improperly installed) best management practices, the release of sediment from construction off the right-of-way, and for sediment deposited in surface waters. For more information, read the news release.

MVP Suspension Update

After completion of inspections to ensure proper soil erosion and sediment controls are implemented, nine sites have been released to work. DEQ inspectors will continue to be on site to monitor and review pipeline construction throughout the project. The public is welcome to email complaints, submit pollution reports online, or call (804) 698-4003. Complaints and concerns will be investigated as DEQ receives them. More information, including a summary of complaint investigations and site inspections is available on the DEQ pipeline Inspections page.

Background: Based on issues identified during inspections and complaint inspections by DEQ, MVP agreed to temporarily suspend work on June 29, 2018. Work will resume only after MVP receives approval by DEQ.
