  • The Proposal

    Millennium Bulk Terminals - Longview, LLC Project SEPA/NEPA Environmental Impact Statements

    An environmental impact statement provides an impartial discussion of the likely significant adverse environmental impacts of a proposal, reasonable alternatives, and mitigation measures that would avoid or minimize the adverse impacts.

    Proposal: Millennium Bulk Terminals – Longview LLC (MBTL), based near Longview, Washington proposes to construct and operate a shipping terminal to export coal at the site of the former Reynolds Aluminum smelter in Cowlitz County. The MBTL proposal is for a facility that would ultimately have the capacity to handle 44 million metric tons of coal annually. Information on the proposal and the environmental analysis.

    Lead Agencies: Cowlitz County (County), the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology), and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) are serving as Lead Agencies, using a synchronized process to oversee preparation of an EIS under the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) and an EIS under the federal National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
