Dominion Resources is exploring a route for the 42-inch, 550-mile Atlantic Coast Pipeline. It would begin in Harrison County and end in North Carolina. The meetings are part of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s environmental review process for the pipeline. 

A meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday, March 23, at Elkins High School. Another is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 24, at Bridgeport High School. 

 

Commission spokeswoman Tamara Young-Allen said the meetings are a way for people to voice their opinions about the project.

 

“We generally provide 3 to 5 minutes for members of the public to express their concerns about the potential environmental impact of this proposal,” she said.
