The MVP Southgate project team hosted a public webinar on Sept. 23, 2021, featuring Dr. Laura C. Green, co-author of the Public Health Assessment of Expected Airborne Emissions from the Proposed Lambert Compressor Station.
Dr. Green is a chemist and board-certified toxicologist who has been practicing in the field of health risk-assessment since the late 1970s. She was on the part-time faculty of Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Massachusetts, for 25 years, where she taught environmental health; and she is currently both a consultant and a part-time employee with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Dr. Green was hired by the MVP Southgate team to perform an independent environmental assessment of the expected emissions from the proposed Lambert Compressor Station. The station is proposed to be built on land owned by Mountain Valley about two miles east of the Chatham town limits and near two existing compressor stations.
Following a presentation of her assessment, Dr. Green answered questions from the audience. In response to one question about the proposed station’s potential impacts, Dr. Green described the station’s impacts as “vanishingly small.”
“As a toxicologist,” she said, “I know that the impacts will not be harmful.”
A summary of Dr. Green’s findings, which was mailed in September to landowners around the proposed Lambert Station and other stakeholders, is available here.
