RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Environmental groups and other advocates say there are more than 650 people from around the state who plan to attend a protest aimed at Gov. Terry McAuliffe.

The protesters plan to rally at the executive mansion Saturday, and want McAuliffe to adopt stricter environmental control and landowner-friendly policies.

The groups want the governor to oppose two planned new pipelines in Virginia and to reject Dominion Virginia Power’s plan to pump treated coal ash water into the state’s rivers.

McAuliffe won’t be at the mansion Saturday, and plans to be in Philadelphia ahead of the Democratic National Committee convention.
