Pressure on ACOE to Save the James
2,000 signed the petition to the Army Corps of Engineers calling for

neither relent on this nor underestimate who is proposing to scar our national heritage. Virginia Electric & Power Co. d/b/a Dominion Virginia Power has a small army of professional advocates and lobbyists working at all levels of government to further their ambitions.
