Mountain Valley Pipeline protest

According to the fossil fuel industry, the Mountain Valley Pipeline is recognized as a critical infrastructure project, essential for our nation’s energy security and energy reliability. But for communities from West Virginia to Southern Virginia this 300 mile-long pipeline project is a major threat to their communities, degrading drinking water, damaging farmland and harming Indigenous sacred sites. It is billions of dollars over budget and years behind schedule, and ever since the project’s start there is no evidence of an economic need for the pipeline.

On this episode of Locus Focus we talk with Maury Johnson, a southern West Virginia landowner, whose organic farm has been impacted by the Mountain Valley Pipeline. He is a member of Preserve Monroe and the POWHR (Protect Our Water, Heritage, & Rights) Coalition both who have been fighting the MVP and other harmful projects across WV/VA&NC for 8 years.
