Wake-Up Call: The Atlantic Coast Pipeline

Sunday Morning Wake-up Call host Rick Moore talks with Barbara Adams, Environmental Activist and Kirk Bowers, Sierra Club Pipeline Specialist about the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.

According to Adams and Bowers, the proposed pipeline will be 42 inches in diameter, requiring excavation of an 8 to 12-foot-deep trench and the bulldozing of a 125-foot-wide construction corridor straight up and down multiple steep-sided forested mountains. The pipeline will require construction of heavy-duty transport roads and staging areas for large earth-moving equipment and pipeline assembly along with blasting through bedrock, and excavation through streams and wetlands.

The Sunday Morning Wake-Up Call is heard on WPVC 94.7 Sunday mornings at 11:00 a.m.The station is looking for volunteers. Apply here if you are interested in volunteering.
