The Eastern Panhandle Pipeline Expansion would run fracked gas through Maryland under the Potomac River and the C&O Canal through Hancock.

Tell DEQ: Protect Our Waterways from Fracked-Gas Pipelines
The proposed Mountain Valley and Atlantic Coast pipelines would be a disaster for water quality, and Governor McAuliffe’s Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) has the critical responsibility to ensure that Virginia waterways are protected.
We know that putting a price on carbon is one of the most straightforward and cost-effective ways to fight climate change. By making fossil fuel polluters pay for the real and damaging costs of their emissions, we can unleash the clean energy solutions we need, and make DC families better off in the process.
The Atlantic Coast & Mountain Valley Pipelines for fracked gas will put our land, water and climate at risk.
We’ve asked for protection from local officials. We’ve petitioned, called, lobbied, rallied, and marched. But our voices have not yet been heard.
Oil trains travel in close proximity to Baltimore homes, schools, churches, and major economic hubs like the Inner Harbor.
Now, it’s time for the Baltimore City Council and Mayor to take action and study the health and safety impact these trains put on communities.
