Accomack County gets update on Delmarva Pipeline

The Accomack County Board of Supervisors were updated on the proposed Delmarva Pipeline. Jerry Saunders of Delmarva Pipeline Company spoke to the Accomack officials about the positive economic effects the natural gas pipeline would have on the economy of the county. Currently that part of Virginia has no access to natural gas. According to Mr. Saunders, the “benefits to Accomack County from the pipeline include an estimated 1,000 new jobs and $80,000 to $120,000 per year in local taxes and $10,000 per franchise fee.” Furthermore, the pipeline will largely run along existing rights-of-way for utilities limiting the impact on landowners. Accomack officials expressed enthusiasm for the proposed natural gas pipeline project.
