Surveying continues

Though residents of Bent Mountain have denied access to surveyors regarding the Mountain Valley Pipeline, many received letters that routing, cultural, and environmental surveys would begin in the area between July 6 and July 31. Mountain Valley Pipeline, LLC writes on their website that the pipeline is being routed “to avoid environmentally sensitive areas to the greatest extent possible.” On July 6, neighbors, friends, and families in the community began patrolling the roads, taking turns in shifts and alerting each other to the presence of surveyor’s on each other’s properties by way of texts, calls, and social media updates.
