On July 26, 2019, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued its Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) on the proposed MVP Southgate project. The FERC is accepting public comment on the DEIS until 5 p.m., Sept. 16, 2019, and will host meetings where members of the public may provide comments on the DEIS.

At the meetings, numbers will be provided to attendees in the order of their arrival. Distribution of the numbers will be discontinued at 7 p.m. in order to ensure all comments are received by the session closing time. Individual verbal comments will be taken on a one-on-one basis with a court reporter and will be submitted to the public record under the project’s FERC Docket No. CP19-14.

While there will not be a formal presentation at these meetings, the public will have direct access to Commission staff to answer questions about the environmental review process. MVP Southgate representatives also will be present to answer questions about the project. The public is invited to attend any of the following meetings:
