HARRISONBURG,Va. (WHSV)-- The proposed swath of pipeline would cut through Augusta and Nelson counties so far, this is an area that affects primarily Waynesboro and Staunton.
It will also cut through West Virginia, Virginia, and North Carolina.
Here's a few facts concerning its construction:
-Dominion doesn't need permission to survey private land. They would have to apply for permits to build in areas like the George Washington National Forest that are home to abundant wildlife.
-Dominion could force the sale of land through eminent domain if landowners resist the company's offering price.
-The use of land above the pipeline could be restricted.
-According to Dominion, they must obtain approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or 'FERC', if the decision is made to build the pipeline.
Dominion has notified landowners about its plans to lay pipeline. Preliminary survey work is currently under way.
