Why oppose the ACP and MVP?
- They’re not needed
- Costs born by ratepayers
- Climate, Environmental, and health impacts
- Gas transmission lines like the ACP and MVP occasionally explode

What you can do to help:
- Contact your Delegate, State Senator, Governor McAuliffe, Governor-Elect Northam, and the DEQ Water Control Board. Demand a stream-by-stream water quality evaluation. Tell them why you think that certification under section 401 of the clean water act should be denied.
- Volunteer with groups opposing the ACP and MVP.
- Start thinking about the possibility of nonviolent civil disobedience should construction begin, and attend direct action training events as they come up
- Go to the State Water Control Board hearings in December, and put in public comments. The schedule for those hearings can be found here: http://www.deq.virginia.gov/ConnectWithDEQ/PublicCalendar.aspx
