Public Hearing on Air Pollution from Proposed Tesoro Savage Oil Terminal

At 360,000 barrels per day, Tesoro’s oil train terminal in Vancouver, WA would be the largest facility of its kind in North America. Yet, Tesoro claims that it will be a minor source of dangerous, foul-smelling pollution.
This may be the last opportunity to testify in front of the Washington Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council (EFSEC) before the Council makes its final recommendation to Governor Inslee. EFSEC will be most receptive to comments that are specific to air pollution.
  • Hearing from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
  • Rally at 4:00 p.m.; 
  • Hearing resumes at 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. 
  • (Hearing will end before 9 pm if all present have testified)
