Pipeline Route Map (Original)
Note from Dominion Virginia Power – As the proposed pipeline is still in the preliminary stages and is constantly changing, we will not be able to provide any detailed locational drawings to you at this time. The reason for sharing a potential pipeline route with landowners is to show them what we have found through our initial research. That research, combined with landowner feedback to help locate other areas to avoid, will ensure the best possible route with the least impact to the environment, historic and cultural resources, etc. If the project moves forward, there will be plenty of opportunities throughout the review process for landowners, county officials and other interested parties to provide additional input.
Thanks for your understanding of the preliminary nature of this project.
