On May 22nd, the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and US Army Corps of Engineers (ACE) opened a 60-day public comment period for a Clean Water Act permit that, if denied, could stop the Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline. Similar projects in New York, Maryland, and Oregon were stopped because this permit was denied.
The power of the regulatory process can stop this zombie pipeline in its tracks! We need your help. Now is the time to make your voice heard!
Two different commenting periods are currently open:
1.The DEQ/Army Corps of Engineers joint 401 and 404 permits (water quality) deadline is July 21st click here for DEQ/ACE commenting guidelines
2.The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (fracked gas permit procedures) deadline is June 18th . This is the link for FERC comment-writing guidelines:
