North Carolina Regulators Approve Atlantic Coast PipelineJan
State regulators in North Carolina have given the Atlantic Coast Pipeline permission to move forward in eight of its counties.
The approval, issued Friday by the N.C. Department of Environmental Quality, is contingent on certain conditions for testing and monitoring.
As NCDEQ Secretary Michael Regan cautioned in a prepared statement, it doesn’t mean the state won’t continue its due diligence.
“Our job doesn’t end with the granting of the permit but continues as we hold the company accountable to live up to its commitments,” he stated. “Our efforts have resulted in a carefully crafted permit that includes increased environmental protections while giving us the tools we need to continue close oversight of this project as it moves forward.”
