Cowlitz tribe opposes Longview coal terminal
The tribe says increased coal shipments on trains and ships could threaten air and water quality along the Columbia River and harm fish.
The Daily News reported that regulators plan five hearings to help plan the environmental review for the $643 million Millennium Bulk Terminals project.
Two other coal terminals are proposed in the Northwest. SSA Marine plans the biggest one near Bellingham. Ambre Energy plans to barge coal on the Columbia River from Boardman to Clatskanie, Ore.
