According to the company, one alternate route would cross about 10 fewer bodies of water in Augusta and Nelson counties than the current proposed route, while another alternate would avoid areas in Nelson County that affected by Hurricane Camille in 1969.
Dominion Resources identified the third alternate route in east of Lovingston, Nelson County. This pipeline route would not cross the Norwood-Wingina Historic District.
The company's fourth route would connect the southern route across the Blue Ridge to either the current proposed route or the proposed alternate east of Lovingston.
Dominion Resources said that a 550m long Atlantic Coast pipeline would run through West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina.
