Proposed Natural Gas Line

This May we received word that landowners had begun receiving notices from Spectra Energy, referencing a proposal for a new natural gas pipeline through Virginia.

We immediately began collect­ing information—putting in calls to Spectra Energy, state and federal agencies, as well as a number of partner organizations who have a common interest in this pipeline or the resources it would impact. We quickly sent a letter to every landowner along the route.

If you live along the route, or know somebody who does, we suggest that landowners get all the facts about the need and route of the pipeline before agreeing to allow any new right-of-way to cross their property. Talking to a qualified attorney about your rights is an important step before making any major decisions.

PEC is holding three meetings in the next coming weeks to discuss all of the information we’ve gathered thus far on the pipeline. The first of which is on June 24, 2014 from 6 – 8 p.m. at the Washington Fire Hall in Rappahannock County. Stay tuned for more information, and please check our website for news or follow up with Dan Holmes at with questions.
