State Oil and Gas General Water Pollution Control Permit
Mountain Valley Pipeline, LLC was issued Registration No. WVR310667, July 14, 2017, under WV General Permit No. WV0116815, Stormwater Associated with Oil and Gas Related Construction
Activities. This registration covers the discharge of stormwater associated with the disturbance of approximately 4,214 acres of land for the construction of approximately 196 miles
of natural gas pipeline along with compressor stations, meter stations, access roads, and interconnects through Wetzel, Harrison, Doddridge, Lewis, Braxton, Webster, Nicholas,
Greenbrier, Fayette, Summers, and Monroe Counties in West Virginia.
A public notice/public comment period closed on March 19, 2017. However, since the hearings for this permit registration were combined with the hearings for the project's 401 Water Quality
Certification and Natural Streams Preservation Act permit, not all stormwater related comments were addressed in the July 14, 2017 "Response to Public Comments". As a result, WVDEP issued
Suspension Order No. 8763 to respond to all public comments received that were associated with WVR310667.
