Despite federal rubberstamping of pipeline projects, we continue to make progress within NC to have our concerns heard about this unnecessary and risky fracked gas pipeline that will impact our rivers, including the Lumber River watershed. NC's Department of Environmental Quality will host three listening sessions intended to gather additional information from residents on the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline. We'll be at the August 17th listening session in Lumberton (at the Southeastern Agricultural Center located at 1027 US Hwy 74). Speaker sign-up begins at 5:30 pm and the listening session starts at 6 pm.
Why are the wetlands, creeks, fishing spots, swimming holes, streams of the Lumber River important to you? Come tell your story at DEQ's listening session this Thursday (August 17th) at 5:30 pm in Lumberton. Raleigh folks need to hear from us. If we don't protect our treasured places, who will?
