Our Mission >

If the ACP project is allowed to proceed, the ABRA Pipeline CSI program will work to limit the inevitable environmental damage through a program designed to investigate and follow-up on reported incidents of both downstream surface water impact and noncompliance with construction requirements in areas of direct disturbance, including the pipeline corridor, access roads, and stream crossings.

Construction of large pipelines across the Appalachian region unavoidably results in noncompliance with runoff control requirements. Many types of noncompliance that should result in enforcement action by regulatory agencies are readily observable both onsite and through photographic and/or video evidence. The Top-Ten List highlights types of noncompliance that are among the most frequent or significant; report these when you see them!

The slideshow below offers some examples but the best place to learn more is by reading the full Top Ten List Document

The Top-Ten List

  1. Failure to install, or delayed installation of, erosion and sediment control (ESC) measures.

  2. Deviation from approved ESC and construction plans.

  3. Missing, failed, damaged, or improperly installed or maintained silt fences, filter socks, or other perimeter control devices.

  4. Missing, failed, damaged, or improperly constructed right-of-way diversions (water bars or slope breakers) and outlet structures.

  5. Formation of earthen slips or downslope gullies within or at the perimeter of the construction right-of-way.

  6. Sediment deposition off-site or outside of the permitted limits of disturbance.

  7. Sediment discharge into streams and wetlands.

  8. Failure to stabilize construction areas, bare ground, and stockpiles of spoil or topsoil after active disturbance.

  9. Failure to construct and properly maintain construction entrances at public roads.

  10. Failure to contain petrochemicals
