Rumble on the River: A Community Forum on Zenith Energy and the Critical Energy Infrastructure Hub in Portland
When: Wednesday, Nov 16, 6:00-8:00pm
Where: St. Luke Lutheran Church (4595 SW California St, Portland)
Join us for a free community-driven forum about the Critical Energy Infrastructure (CEI) Hub and Zenith Energy’s oil-by-rail. In this forum, you’ll learn about the CEI Hub and Zenith Energy’s threats to public health, safety, and our environment, and how to take action.
The CEI Hub is a six-mile stretch of old tank farms, located in NW Portland along the Willamette River and holding more than 90% of all liquid fuel in Oregon. The hub is on an earthquake liquefaction zone, and in the event of an earthquake, local communities would face huge threats to their health and safety. The CEI Hub is also home to a Zenith Energy oil terminal and oil-by-rail operations, which pose even more threats to our communities.
