Stop the Potomac Pipeline

After Big Oil’s rush for dangerous fracking across the country, the industry is now threatening our communities yet again — with pipelines.

In Maryland and West Virginia, our communities are now threatened by a proposed fracked-gas pipeline from TransCanada, the same company behind the climate disaster Keystone XL Pipeline. This new pipeline is known as the “Eastern Panhandle Expansion Project.” It would cross Western Maryland and Governor Larry Hogan has the ability to stop it. He can direct the Maryland Department of the Environment to deny a special water quality certification under the Clean Water Act. And stop it he should, because the notorious oil company TransCanada would need to drill horizontally under the Potomac River, the C&O Canal, and its tributaries to build it.

The “Potomac Pipeline” would carry fracked gas from Bedford County, PA through Hancock, Maryland and into Berkeley County, West Virginia. It would threaten the health of the millions of people who source their drinking water from the Potomac River in Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia.

To protect our communities and climate, we need to STOP the Potomac Pipeline and protect the Potomac River from fracked gas.
