This is a great use of an old industrial site. We need more companies willing to clean up and utilize brownfield sites. This draft EIS is sufficient and it is time to move forward. We (Americans) take readily available power for granted, and unlike the rest of the US that relies on coal for electrical power, in the northwest we take hydropower for granted. The majority of countries in the world do not have continuous and reliable power, and if they do it is usually coal power. A sense of balance should be made when looking at the environmental impacts verses the worldwide health, social and economic benefits of coal based power. Thank you for taking my comment and for providing the opportunity to weigh in. I believe strongly in this project and hope that you will consider the strong commitment Millennium has made to restoring and protecting the environment in our community.
