United States Fourth Circuit

ResetAA Font size: Print

Sierra Club v. State Water Control Board, 17-2406

Denied a legal challenge filed by environmental groups seeking to prevent the construction of a natural gas pipeline across part of Virginia. The environmental groups argued that the Commonwealth of Virginia had improperly certified that the pipeline project would not degrade the state's water. Unpersuaded, the Fourth Circuit, which had jurisdiction over the case by federal statute, concluded that Virginia's issuance of a Clean Water Act certification was not arbitrary and capricious, and thus denied the environmental groups' petition for review.
