The people of Yogaville, who were once worried about noise pollution from the Atlantic Coast Pipeline’s compressor site proposed just six miles away, may now be able to continue living peacefully.

According to Carla Picard, Dominion Energy’s external affairs manager for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, the company will put full station silencers on the compressor station in Buckingham County, where Yogaville is located.

Picard tells 1070 WINA that although the noise from the compressor will sometimes, but rarely, exceed 55 decibels, the silencers will assure that “even our closest neighbors wouldn’t know that anything was going on.”

A Yogaville spokesperson had not returned a phone call at press time.
