In late 2023, Mountain Valley Pipeline Southgate Extension developers announced changes to their embattled methane gas pipeline proposal, that include cutting the total length in half, and removing Alamance County from the route.
The new route would extend 31 miles from the terminus of the MVP mainline in Chatham, VA into Rockingham County, NC. According to developers, the revised plan would also mean fewer water crossings, and no additional compressor station, the permit for which MVP Southgate was denied on environmental justice grounds in 2021.
The plans are not yet finalized, and the community-driven fight against the unnecessary and dangerous project continues, until MVP Southgate is cancelled for good.
