CLARKSBURG — Hiring is underway for pipeline projects in the state.
Tree felling has already started in West Virginia to make way for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, which will carry natural gas from Harrison County to Robeson County, North Carolina.
Another project, the Mountain Valley Pipeline, expects tree felling to start soon in some locations. This pipeline will run from northwestern West Virginia to Southern Virginia.
“A definitive construction start date has not yet been set,” according to Natalie Cox, Mountain Valley Pipeline spokesperson. “Given the issuance of partial notices to proceed by the (Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) for select areas along the route, it is likely that activity in West Virginia will begin with tree felling.”
