Virginia has a pipeline problem

In Shipman, Va., a family that has held its homestead for generations, tending graves of ancestors and buildings erected by great-great grandfathers, struggles to understand why it must give its land to Dominion Energy.

In Lyndhurst, Va., an aging mother who owns 125 acres filled with creeks and springs fights back as the land she has tended for decades to pass on to her daughter is prepped for bulldozing.

They are paying a price for Dominion’s Atlantic Coast Pipeline, but they, like every other Dominion customer in Virginia, will also pay hard cash for this unneeded project when the utility bill shows up, thanks to a poorly regulated monopoly scheme that Dominion and its political cronies have constructed.
