Thank you for the opportunity to state my opinions on this important issue.
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.
I appreciate the agencies’ hard work on reviewing this project. Please don’t let it get bogged down in an expanded scope of review. This old industrial site needs a new life.
