BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. — The West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection announced today, Wednesday, February 7, that the agency has approved a stormwater discharge permit for work associated with the construction of a 23-mile natural gas pipeline in Morgan and Berkeley counties by Mountaineer Gas.

DEP spokesman Jacob Glance issued a press release on the decision shortly after noon.

Glance said the permit related to the discharge of stormwater “associated with the disturbance of 191.7 acres of land for construction of the project.”

According to the DEP, the stormwater permit “gives WVDEP wide ranging inspection and enforcement authority. The pipeline construction stormwater permit allows WVDEP and its enforcement officers to oversee construction activity along the full route of the pipeline including water crossings, uplands, and every other part of the impacted surface through which the pipeline crosses.”
