Submission Text
The environmental study for the Longview port should be accepted as sufficient sooner rather than later. I support this plan and the many positive economic and environmental benefits it will reap. Right off the bat, Millennium began working with the Department of Ecology to clean up the old Reynolds smelter site. In addition Millennium is working to restore the natural habitat along the Columbia River, it has removed and replaced old pilings, and has brought the existing dock up to minimum standards. Why has this project’s permits for the export terminal taken so long? All this delay has done is postpone the cleanup and restoration of a great industrial port site. Thank you for your work to move forward with this project.
