Our environment is important to our quality of life, but equally important is the ability to make a living. The proposed coal export terminal in Cowlitz County will strike the right balance between environmental stewardship and economic growth. It should be allowed to move forward.
Millennium already handles coal at their site, and they have done so for more than 70 years. This is not a broad departure from current industrial uses and should be treated as such. An environmental review of this time and scope should not have been needed to redevelop an old smelter site. The Draft EIS is sufficient, it’s time to move forward.
I’m certain the draft EIS will clearly outline a project deserving support. Thank you for accepting public comment in this matter. I hope this project can commence in short order.
