Millennium Bulk Terminals-Longview reaches important milestone

Published by , Digital Assistant Editor
Dry Bulk,

Millennium Bulk Terminals-Longview has reached another significant milestone for its proposed coal export terminal when Cowlitz County and Washington State Department of Ecology (DOE) released the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS). The completion of the FEIS concludes an independent Washington State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) study, under a regulatory process that began in February 2012.

“Today we are celebrating the completion of another strong step forward,” said Bill Chapman, President and CEO of Millennium Bulk Terminals-Longview. “This independent state study shows we can achieve our goals to bring more family-wage jobs to Longview while meeting the high standards for environmental protection in Cowlitz County and Washington State,” Chapman continued. “We have carefully designed the project to protect air and water quality, fish and wildlife, groundwater and people in accordance with regulatory requirements.”

During the process, 10 public meetings across the state of Washington were provided for public comment. The agency considered those comments before the SEPA Final EIS was published today. The US Army Corps of Engineers is expected to finalise its Environmental Impact Statement in 2017.
