These projects cannot be built without all required federal and state permits. Success on ending coal and oil proposals throughout the Pacific NW was partly due to record-breaking numbers of public comments and testimonies. An important 60-day comment period just opened for the Department of Environmental Quality’s 401 Water Quality Permit and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ 404 Water Quality Permit. To legally proceed with construction, the Canadian company, Pembina, must secure this permit. We plan to collect hundreds of comments opposing the Jordan Cove terminal and the 230-mile pipeline.
To provide background on the projects, members of Stop Fracked Gas/PDX will open with a short play, “The Folly of Frack”. This informative romp will update folks and lead into a comment-writing workshop, during which you’ll get practical tips and an opportunity to write your comments to DEQ and the Corps. This how we can stop fracked gas in Oregon and everywhere. Bring a laptop if you like.
Please note, this event will NOT be held at the Sierra Club office. It will instead be held at Havurah Shalom: 825 NW 18th (x-street NW Kearney), Portland
