Atlantic Coast Pipeline Group 1

Dominion’s Atlantic Coast pipeline has been all over the news lately.  The proposed natural gas pipeline will travel 550 miles from West Virginia to North Carolina.  The company is pushing the project forward, as homeowners, organizations, and communities are fighting to end it.  As part of our Conservation Photography class at Eastern Mennonite University, our group covered the areas the pipeline is affecting in Virginia.  Dealing with a huge company like Dominion, it is easy to forget about the individuals in the path of the pipeline.  For this reason, our group decided to focus on the everyday people going up against the company to save their homes and communities.  We visited homeowners along the route of the pipeline in Nelson and Augusta Counties, photographing their properties and talking with them about their efforts to stop the project.
