FERC approves Greenbrier pipeline

"The federal government on Wednesday approved a natural gas pipeline that will affect more than 520 acres in the New River Valley," according to this report. The Roanoke Times article says a pipeline opponent claimed "that Dominion never demonstrated that the public benefit of the project outweighs the permanent damage it will do to the environment" and that "FERC gave short shrift to a proposal that Dominion tap into Duke's Patriot line to avoid two utility scars across the landscape."
