Pipeline Lawsuit

A new twist as Mountain Valley Pipeline has filed paperwork to sue hundreds of landowners in Southwest Virginia. The proposed pipeline would bring natural gas from Northwestern West Virginia down to Pittsylvania County. 

Hundreds of homeowners along the route are upset, we spoke with one of them about her concerns. 

Carolyn Reilly never imaged she'd be fighting for her land when she bought it seven years ago, "We never imagined that we would be facing such a battle against the fossil fuel industry and these private corporations that are desiring to seize our land for their private benefit, for their financial gain," said Reilly. 

She says she's not just going to sit back and watch them take her land away, "This is not anywhere close to being a done deal there is still plenty of fight left in us as landowners.  All the permits are not in place for this pipeline there are still many steps that need to be taken in order for anything to be touched in the state of virgina."

We reached out to Mountain Valley Pipeline and they released a statement saying: "Plans are to continue to work with all landowners along the Mountain Valley Pipeline route in an attempt to fairly compensate them for the necessary easements."
