Re: Mountain Valley Pipeline, LLC

Docket No. CP16-10-000
Supplement to Variance Request No. A-78

Dear Ms. Bose:

On July 29, 2019, Mountain Valley Pipeline, LLC filed Variance Request No. A-78. In this filing,
Mountain Valley provides additional information regarding slide MVP-A-063 and MVP-A-064. The
slide repair authorization requested in Variance Request No. A-78 would require tree clearing out of
season at approximate milepost 1.50. Due to the unstable nature of this slide, Mountain Valley is
requesting emergency authorization from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to cut trees
necessary to repair the slide prior to November 15, 2019. This slide was identified on April 22, 2019
and was stabilized. Following a significant rain event on July 7, 2019, additional slide movement was
observed on July 11, 2019. The progression of the slide caused additional area outside the limits of
disturbance to destabilize, uprooted numerous large trees, has the potential to impact an aquatic
resource, and has progressed to the point where a residence directly downslope is unsafe to be
occupied. Mountain Valley Pipeline must stabilize the slide before it causes damage or injury to the
landowners and resources located down-slope of the slide.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at (412) 553-5786 or Thank you.

Respectfully submitted,
by and through its operator,
