On April 27, 2018, the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) posted notice of a request for technical information on the sufficiency of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) Nationwide Permit (NWP) 12's general and regional conditions, the Corps' permit authorization and the Commonwealth's §401 water quality certification of NWP 12 related to specific wetland or stream crossings for both the MVP and ACP projects. The comment period was set for May 1, 2018, through May 30, 2018.
On May 22, 2018, the DEQ website went down. While, the submittal of comments is not affected; i.e., the mechanisms to submit comments are still available, website availability of the documents under review is not currently available. Therefore the public comment period will be extended. The exact date of the deadline will be based on when the website is back on line and will be announced on the website and again through the Town Hall.
The text of the original announcement, which includes working links to the email addresses for submittal of technical information or questions, is available at http://townhall.virginia.gov/L/ViewNotice.cfm?gnid=828.
