The Washington Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council (EFSEC) will hold one final public hearing on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 in Vancouver.
It’s hard to imagine a bigger threat to the Columbia River, our safety, and our climate than the Tesoro Savage oil-by-rail terminal. You can help stop it. Tesoro’s reckless proposal—which would bring up to five dangerous oil trains each day down the Columbia River—is nearing a decision point. Help stop Tesoro: Take action to oppose Tesoro’s water pollution permit.
The Washington Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council (EFSEC) will hold one final public hearing on Tuesday, August 22 in Vancouver. Can you make it?
- What: Final Tesoro Savage Public Comment Hearing about Stormwater Pollution Permit
- When: Tuesday, August 22, 2017. Join us outside at 12:00 p.m. for a rally and group photo! The hearing lasts from 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. or until last speaker (whichever comes first). Please wear red.
- Where: Clark College Columbia Technical Centre, 18700 SE Mill Plain Blvd Vancouver, WA 98683.
- RSVP: Attend the public hearing.
- Take Action: Join us in urging EFSEC to reject Tesoro’s water pollution permit.
This hearing focuses on Tesoro’s industrial stormwater pollution permit. While not the main decision point for the overall project, the permit contains significant flaws that support EFSEC denying the permit. The storage and handling of huge amounts of crude oil will create pollution harmful to the river and groundwater. Check out our talking points and join us at the hearing.
In the coming months, we expect EFSEC and Governor Inslee to make the Big Decision: whether or not to grant a site certificate for the massive oil terminal. August 22 will be our last opportunity to testify to EFSEC before it makes a recommendation to Governor Inslee.
See you at the rally and public hearing on August 22.
