The Notice of Scoping is included as attachment 1.1 The scoping comment period ended on April 15, 2021. It has come to our attention that the entire environmental mailing list may not have received copies of the Notice of Scoping; therefore, the Commission is issuing this Notice of Supplemental Scoping Period to provide interested parties that did not receive the previous notice an opportunity to file comments on environmental issues. The supplemental scoping period will close on August 2, 2021. The staff of the Commission is preparing an environmental assessment (EA) that will discuss the environmental impacts of the proposed Amendment to the Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity for the Mountain Valley Pipeline Project (Amendment Project) involving construction and operation of facilities by Mountain Valley Pipeline, LLC (Mountain Valley) in Wetzel, Lewis, Webster, Nicholas, Greenbrier, Summers, and Monroe Counties, West Virginia and Giles, Montgomery, Roanoke, Franklin, and Pittsylvania Counties, Virginia. Your comments should focus on the potential environmental effects, reasonable alternatives, and measures to avoid or lessen environmental impacts. Your input will help the Commission staff determine what issues they need to evaluate in the EA. Commission staff will consider all written comments during the preparation of the EA. If you submitted comments in Docket No. CP21–57–000 during the previous scoping period, those comments will be considered and do not need to be resubmitted. On June 11, 2021, Commission staff issued a ‘‘Notice of Schedule for the Preparation of an Environmental Assessment for the Proposed Amendment to the Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity for the Mountain Valley Pipeline Project’’ (Notice of Schedule).2 As indicated in the Notice of Schedule, the EA is scheduled to be published on August 13, 2021. If a schedule change becomes necessary, the Commission will issue a revised schedule.
