Submission Text
The draft environmental study for Millennium Bulk Terminals coal export facility was sufficient. Please move forward. There are many benefits of the project that the community is waiting for. Isn’t an EIS supposed to study the environmental impacts above and beyond what exists today? The old Reynolds site, where Millennium is located, has already been paved, piped and pulled carbon around for 70 years. The permits for this coal export facility were submitted over 4 years ago. Surely it can’t take much more time to conduct this environmental review.It’s an existing industrial site and it should not take another 70 years to get a permit for redevelopment. Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the process and for considering my input as you begin reviewing this project.
