Local project approved for ACP developers

UPSHUR COUNTY, W. Va. (WDTV) -- The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission gave Dominion Energy approval Thursday to build pipe yards in Upshur County in anticipation of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.

According to reports, the location is off Route 33 about one mile up Brushy Fork.

A similar plan was approved for North Carolina. The approval came after a targeted filing by Dominion earlier this week. They're expected to file more as the company gets closer to making a request to start construction on the pipeline itself.
