Dominion Moving Forward with Pipeline
Sept. 2, 2014
Dominion is moving forward with plans to build a natural gas pipeline that would cut through Nelson County.
The 550-mile project will start in Harrison County, WV., going through Nelson and Buckingham counties in Virginia and end in Robeson County, NC.
The $5 billion proposal has been met with criticism in Nelson Co. where residents are concerned about the impacts of the pipeline.
The pipe itself would be 42 inches wide, and buried out of sight. However, Dominion would have to remove all trees and other obstructions for 75 feet surrounding the pipeline.
The project still has to go through the approval process.
