Chickahominy Pipeline representative appears before Board

On Wednesday, Jan. 12th, a representative of Chickahominy Pipeline LLC appeared before the Board of Supervisors to provide an overview and answer questions on their plan to build a natural gas pipeline through five counties, including Hanover, in order to serve a proposed natural gas power plant in Charles City County.

No action was taken by the Board of Supervisors during the meeting on this topic, as this was not a public hearing. The Board of Supervisors had asked citizens to submit questions to be presented to the Chickahominy Pipeline representatives, and the questions were provided in advance to Chickahominy Pipeline LLC. These are the answers provided by Chickahominy Pipeline (PDF).
