Public Comment Period for Longview Coal Export Terminal Begins August 19th

The US Army Corps of Engineers,  Cowlitz County, and the WA Department of Ecology are asking for public comments regarding what should be considered in the environmental review of  the Longview coal terminal proposed by Alcoa, Ambre Energy and Arch Coal.

The Millennium Bulk coal terminal would be built along the Columbia River in Cowlitz county, with the capacity to export 44 million tons of Powder River Basin coal each year. It’s the second largest coal export terminal proposed for Washington.

The coal would arrive by train and then be loaded onto ships bound for the Asian market.

The public can submit comments online or by mail and email any time between August 16th and November 18th.
