Learn more about how a new proposed fossil-fuel project–the Virginia Natural Gas Header Improvement Project (HIP)–will affect Prince William and Fauquier counties, from your home computer!

We will be hearing from Food & Water Action’s Virginia Organizer who will give an overview of the project.

Dr. Brita Lundberg from Greater Boston Physicians for Social Responsibility and the Massachusetts Medical Society for Environmental and Occupational Health will be joining us. Dr. Lundberg will speak about the negative health impacts this project will have to residents based on her work with and research on similar fossil-fuel projects like the Weymouth Compressor Station.

Mr. Thomas Hadwin will be joining us as well. Mr. Hadwin worked in electric and gas utilities in Michigan and New York. He led a multi-disciplinary team responsible for siting and gaining regulatory approval of multi-billion dollar projects. The group was also responsible for assuring that company facilities complied with state and federal environmental regulations.

Hosted by Food & Water Action-Virginia, Sierra Club Great Falls Chapter, Mothers Out Front Woodbridge, Greater Prince William Climate Action Network, and the Chesapeake Climate Action Network.
