DEQ Takes Enforcement Action Against MVP

MVP Suspension Update

After MVP’s suspension of work on June 29, 2018, areas are being inspected and released. Two of the three spreads in Virginia have now been released in full. DEQ continues to ensure proper soil erosion and sediment controls are being implemented and maintained 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. A summary of complaint investigations and weekly site inspections is available on the DEQ pipeline inspections page.
