VERONA, Va. (AP) - Augusta County wants federal regulators to give the public more time to comment on a proposed natural gas pipeline.

The comment period for the scoping notice regarding the Atlantic Coast Pipeline expires April 28. Scoping is an early process to determine the scope of environmental issues and alternatives.

The News-Virginian (https://bit.ly/1CrFmgs ) reports that the Augusta County Board of Supervisors voted on Wednesday to ask the Federal Regulatory Commission to extend the comment period by 30 days. The board also plans to ask the commission to hold a second scoping meeting in the county.

Dominion Resources is partnering with other utilities to build the $5 billion pipeline. It would run about 550 miles from West Virginia to North Carolina.
