Ruby and John Laury live in Buckingham County, Virginia, in Union Hill—a predominantly African-American community where Dominion Energy plans to build a compressor station as part of the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline. The station would use gas-fired turbines to pump gas through the system.
The proposed pipeline would have only three compressor stations—one at each and, and one in the middle, where Ruby and John live. Here, they talk about why they think their community was chosen for this station, and what that means to them.
