Clean Water Act Comment Writing Workshop
Join Rogue Riverkeeper and the "No LNG Exports Campaign" on Monday July 9th in Medford, OR to write comments to stop the proposed Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline and Jordan Cove LNG export terminal!
On May 22nd, the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the US Army Corps opened a 60-day public comment period for a critical permit that, if denied, could stop the proposed Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline.
Oregon DEQ is responsible for deciding whether this massive fracked gas pipeline and export terminal would negatively impact the clean water in Oregon. Federal regulators cannot approve the project if the DEQ decides that the project does not comply with Oregon’s water quality standards. Fracked gas pipelines in Oregon, Maryland, and New York were stopped because state agencies denied this permit.
For the next two months, it’s up to all of us to submit comments that demonstrate that the impacts of this project would be far too devastating for the health and safety of our communities, clean water, and the local economy.
