Camp-Out to Stop the Pipeline Under the Potomac

July 28, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - July 29, 2017 @ 12:00 pm

***UPDATE*** Due to inclement weather, this event has been postponed from July 28-29 to Friday, August 11-12.

TransCanada wants to build a fracked-gas pipeline under the treasured Potomac River — the drinking water source for over six million people. That’s why CCAN and groups across Maryland and West Virginia are banding together for a summer-long rolling encampment to keep the project from moving forward.

Join CCAN on Friday, August 11 for an overnight camp-out to stop this risky pipeline! We’ll call on Governor Hogan to complete Maryland’s fracking ban by rejecting TransCanada’s Eastern Panhandle Expansion Project. If Governor Hogan truly supports a ban on fracking in Maryland, he must also reject gas pipelines that rely on fracking in neighboring states. Governor Hogan can complete Maryland’s fracking ban by directing the Maryland Department of the Environment to reject the project’s water quality certificates under the Clean Water Act.

We need to build enough power to show Governor Hogan the mounting opposition against TransCanada’s Eastern Panhandle Expansion Project. Join us for a fun-filled camp-out to help protect our water, communities and climate!
