Residents of a multi-county area formed the Dominion Pipeline Monitoring Coalition (DPMC) this fall to ensure legal and regulatory compliance by Dominion Resources and its contractors involved in the construction of a proposed gas pipeline through the area. If Dominion's pipeline proposal goes to construction, DPMC will utilize a small fleet of four aircraft, as well as ground monitoring, to assure compliance with regulatory procedures and permits. In the photo, two DPMC pilots and their planes with a number of observers and ground volunteers. Photo courtesy of the DPMC.
