Aberdeen City Councilman Alan Richrod discusses oil threat
Hundreds Rally against crude oil on the Harbor
Community weighs in on proposed oil terminals- KOMO News video
Scoping specifically asked Ecology to study the impacts along the rail line throughout the state, but the DRAFT EIS totally ignores everything outside of 59 miles of Aberdeen. The Department of Ecology and the City of Hoquiam do not have the right to sacrifice other communities for the benefit of special interests. BNSF averages one non-yard accident per million miles. On that basis, we conclude these terminals will lead to 44 non-yard accidents in 20 years. Serious accidents are guaranteed.
The stench created by oil was also completely unaddressed, even though it can have major impacts on the community's health and economic viability.
