Virginia Beach Pipeline Litigation Continues

Record #:
The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed in June a 1990 District Court’s finding that the Army Corps of Engineers properly considered the permit they issued for construction of the Lake Gaston-Virginia Beach pipeline. The City of Virginia Beach filed another suit in the Eastern District Court of North Carolina seeking to overturn a law passed only days earlier by the North Carolina General Assembly. The recent bill created a new statute mandating certain conditions under which water is withdrawn from any major river or reservoir.
