cove point lng export facility

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has approved the construction of the Cove Point Liquified Natural Gas Export Facility, located near the Chesapeake Bay. We, along with a coalition of environmental groups, stood in opposition to the constuction of this facility. This incidence is of particular concern to Potomac Riverkeeper due to upstream impacts, including water quality isses from tunneling and land erosion as fracking sites expand accross the region.

Status Update: We continue to monitor fracking and tunneling developments within the Potomac Watershed to ensure water quality safety and river health.
