Youth ages 10 and up encouraged to attend!

Comments are needed to stop Oregon's worst climate-busting proposal—the Canadian company Pembina’s proposed Jordan Cove fracked-gas export terminal & Pacific Connector Gas Pipeline. The 229-mile Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline and the Jordan Cove LNG export terminal, would impact 485 rivers, streams, and waterbodies in Oregon on both public and private lands. This project cannot be built without all required federal and state Clean Water Act permits, which requires a public comment period. Pembina has recently reapplied for the permits. In response, on May 22nd, 2018, the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers opened a 60-day public comment period for the two important Clean Water Act permits. With the help of record breaking comments from the public about the impacts to rivers, streams and wetlands, similar gas pipelines in Oregon, New York andMaryland have been stopped.

We need your voice let our agencies know why you are concerned about the Jordan Cove project and Pacific Connector pipeline and how you would be impacted by the pollution and degradation of our rivers and streams.

If you can’t make it, go to nolngexports.org and follow the take action link to get the informationneeded to write an effective comment from your home,
This is a critical chance to help stop fracked gas in Oregon and everywhere. Please add your voice!
