The Columbia River site where Millennium Bulk Terminals wishes to build the largest coal export facility in North America.
You may be one of the more than 250,000 voices that have risen up to say NO to what would be the largest coal export facility in the nation. If so, thank you!
We need your help again. Tell the Washington Department of Ecology to deny a key water pollution permit and stop dirty coal dust and toxic pollutants from fouling the Columbia River.
Since its inception, Millennium Bulk Terminals’ proposal to build North America’s largest coal export terminal has drawn unprecedented opposition. Pacific Northwesterners know that Washington State should not give coal companies permission to pollute the Columbia River with toxic coal dust and worsen the climate crisis.
But it’s not just you. Federal and state agencies also oppose the Millennium coal export project. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service opposes Millennium’s plans to pollute the Columbia with coal dust: “The [U.S. Fish and Wildlife] Service has significant concerns regarding the foreseeable impacts of the Millennium Longview Coal Terminal project. The Service believes that the current proposal would have adverse impacts to fish, wildlife, and tribal trust resources… The Service believes that the SEPA co-leads [i.e., the Washington Department of Ecology and Cowlitz County] should recommend against approval of this proposed facility/project.”
Make sure that your voice is part of the growing movement of opposition to coal export: tell the Washington Department of Ecology to deny Millennium’s permit to pollute our precious Columbia River!
