"Mountain Valley Pipeline's West Virginia Water Permit Tossed By Court"

"A federal appeals court on Monday vacated a water permit needed by developers to restart construction on the Mountain Valley pipeline in West Virginia, marking the latest setback for the $6.2 billion project.

The Richmond, Virginia-based 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found several defects in the review the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection conducted before issuing the permit.

Construction can't restart in the state until the agency reconsiders the permit, which is needed before the 303-mile proposed pipeline can cross through the state’s streams and wetlands."
