The Mountain Valley Pipeline is proposing to build a polluting fracked gas compressor station facility in a rural environmental justice community in Pittsylvania County, Virginia. The Lambert Compressor Station, if built, would be the third compressor station within less than a mile of two existing Williams Transcontinental (Transco) compressor stations and an adequate health assessment based on this cumulative impact has not been conducted, as well as other disregards for environmental justice concerns makes it very inappropriate for the Air Pollution Control Board to consider this matter at this time. Health concerns and concerns regarding meaningful participation of impacted persons/communities throughout the duration of the application and permitting process are good reasons to pause and consider the health and cultural risks of the fence-line Banister community, who would be disproportionately impacted by this fossil fuel infrastructure and deny the MVP this required and critical permit.
The Air Pollution Control Board will decide whether or not to approve this harmful station on July 7, and our voice needs to be lifted up and heard so impacted communities are considered in this process.
Here's why signing this petition is critically important:
The Air Pollution Control Board has the power to stop polluters from building an environmentally unjust, toxic, compressor station. Tell them Virginians expect them to do their part in protecting our air and impacted communities!
