Tell Gov. Hogan: No Pipeline Under Our Potomac!
Maryland just passed historic legislation to ban fracking. But now a proposed pipeline that would run under the Potomac River threatens the drinking water of millions.
WHY THIS MATTERS
The Eastern Panhandle Pipeline Expansion would run fracked gas from West Virginia to Pennsylvania — the shortest and cheapest way they can — through Maryland under the Potomac River and the C&O canal through Hancock. The pipeline would enter Maryland northwest of Hancock and go under the Potomac River and the C&O Canal before terminating in West Virginia. It does nothing for Maryland — but it puts Maryland’s natural resources, and the drinking water of millions downstream, at risk.
Governor Hogan has the authority to stop this pipeline. He can direct the Maryland Department of the Environment to deny a special water quality certification under the Clean Water Act.
