“Natural Gas Pipeline, Iconic Trail at Odds in Supreme Court Case”

“Lynn Cameron inspected the layers of mountain ridges from an overlook on the Appalachian Trail, and imagined how the scenery might change. Her gloved hand drew an imaginary line across the distant landscape to show the proposed path of the Atlantic Coast natural gas pipeline.

“That would just transform this,” the Virginia Wilderness Committee board member said of the pipeline, as a light snow fell on central Virginia’s George Washington National Forest.

Atlantic Coast project engineer Greg Supey doesn’t get the fuss. He sees the terrain as fertile ground for Dominion Energy Inc.'s painstakingly studied route that minimizes impacts to the trail and the environment.”
