Washington Metering and Regulation (M&R) delivery point in Tuscarawas 
County, re-wheel compressors on three existing centrifugal compression 
sets at Dominion's existing Newark Compressor Station in Licking

Background

    On March 13, 2018, the Commission issued a Notice of Intent to 
Prepare an Environmental Assessment for the Proposed Sweden Valley 
Project and Request for Comments on Environmental Issues (NOI). The NOI 
was sent to affected landowners; federal, state, and local governmental 
representatives and agencies; elected officials; environmental and 
public interest groups; potentially interested Indian tribes; and local 
libraries and newspapers. In response to the NOI, we received a total 
of 15 comments letters. The comments addressed support for the project, 
purpose and need, water resources and wetlands, geology, vegetation, 
wildlife, fisheries, threatened and endangered species, land use and 
recreation, air quality/greenhouse gas emissions, alternative analysis, 
tribal cultural resources and the National Historic Preservation Act, 
and cumulative impacts. All substantive comments will be addressed in 
the EA.
    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is a federal cooperating agency 
who is assisting us in preparing this EA because they have jurisdiction 
by law or special expertise with respect to environmental impacts 
associated with Dominion's proposal.
