Join us Friday Aug. 18th to tell the NC Dept of Environmental Quality to reject the 401 water quality certification for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline. The construction of the ACP threatens our wetlands, streams, rivers, springs and wells. Additionally it will destroy sites sacred to the Lumbee and Tuscarora peoples, and sieze people’s family farms for the private gain of energy companies like Duke Energy and Dominion. The fracked gas that the ACP will bring to market will create greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to constructing 20 new coal plants or adding 14 million cars to the road.
Come out Aug 18th and tell the DEQ to protect our water and climate!
In the meantime please submit a public comment to the DEQ by Aug 19th telling them to reject the ACP:
- Mail your own comments to: 401 Permitting, 1617 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, NC, 27699-1617.
- Email your own comments to: PublicComments@ncdenr.gov (include “ACP” in the email’s subject line)
