The case against the Atlantic Coast Pipeline

New website houses evidence opposing risky natural gas pipeline

It’s harmful, obsolete, costly, and its future is uncertain.

SELC and our partners have maintained for years that the risky and unnecessary Atlantic Coast Pipeline should not be built. Now you can find the supporting research and legal documentation behind that position all in one place, at StopTheACP.org.

Whether you’re looking for evidence of the proposed project’s irresponsible and harmful route, how all of Dominion and Duke Energy’s customers will have to pay the price, or information on the vulnerable communities that will bear the brunt of this unneeded project, we’ve made it easier than ever to find.

Federal courts have thrown out five of the ACP’s permits in cases argued by SELC. To learn why we’ve been fighting so hard against the pipeline, visit StopTheACP.org.
