Oregon PSR and our coalition partners have been working for the past few years to end the Millennium Bulk Projects coal export terminal proposed for Longview, Washington. If built, Millennium would be the largest coal export facility in North America, sending up to 44 million metric tons of Powder River and Uinta Basin coal per year to Asian markets that are quickly turning away from coal-fired power. Up to sixteen trains a day traveling between the Powder River Basin and Longview would serve the terminal, impacting public safety response times in rail communities across the Pacific Northwest and contributing to higher rates of cancer in low-income communities, including Longview’s Highlands neighborhood.
