  West Virginia. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
West Virginia’s climate is generally of the humid continental type, with hot summers (except in the highest areas) and cool to cold winters.
Virginia was politically dominated by the wealthy tidewater planters, who were overrepresented in the state legislature because slaves were counted in apportioning representation.
Protected by federal troops, delegates representing most of Virginia’s western counties met at Wheeling on June 11, 1861, and nullified the Virginia ordinance of secession, declared the offices of the state government at Richmond to be vacated, and formed the “restored government” of Virginia, with Francis H. Pierpont as governor.

 West Virginia, Columbia Gas Transmission, Current Site Information (NPL Pad) | Mid-Atlantic Superfund | US EPA
Columbia currently operates approximately 19,000 miles of pipeline and approximately 243 active or retired compressor stations in Pennsylvania, New York, North Carolina, New Jersey, Maryland, Kentucky, Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, and Delaware.
Columbia's pipeline is interconnected with other natural gas transmission pipelines and has been used in the past to transport natural gas owned by other companies as well as natural gas owned by Columbia.
Columbia maintains that these PCBs have been introduced into its pipeline system as a result of interconnections with natural gas transmission pipelines of other companies that used lubricating oil containing PCBS, and that Columbia did not use PCB lubricating oils in its natural gas compressors.

He said that the new rate system, which uses performance-based rates, is cheaper, not as time-consuming and less risky for the company to use than the standard rate base system.
Virginia Natural Gas and Columbia Gas are the first two PBR cases to be heard since the General Assembly changed the law for the options in rate regulation in 1996, said Andy Farmer, a commission spokesman.

The Court decided June 15 that Columbia improperly deducted expenses from revenues before sending out royalty checks at the promised rate of one eighth.
Columbia attorneys argued that the lease contracts allowed deductions, but the Supreme Court of Appeals found the language ambiguous.
If Columbia intended for lessors to bear a portion of processing and transportation costs, Maynard wrote, the company could have written specific language into leases explaining how it would calculate royalties and what deductions it would take.
