Please make comments, now DUE by August 21st, regarding the water permits for the project. You can write the same comment for both agencies and you can comment more than once!!

If built, the Jordan Cove LNG terminal would become the first liquified natural gas (LNG) export terminal on the West Coast. This project would require the 229-mile Pacific Connector pipeline to be built across public and private land to transport fracked gas from Canada and the U.S. Rockies overseas.

The pipeline would terminate on the coast in a potentially explosive export facility in the Port of Coos Bay (a tsunami & earthquake subduction zone)- putting over 16,000 people at risk in the event of an explosion. Altogether, this project would pollute nearly 500 waterways, harm salmon habitat, impact hundreds of landowners, threaten Indigenous tribal territories and burial grounds, raise energy prices, and become the largest source of climate pollution in Oregon.  The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have opened a public comment period on the projects.

Similar gas pipelines in Oregon, New York, and Maryland have been stopped throughout the public comments process – but we have to act fast. Comment today!
