Grants Pass Comment Writing Workshop

  • Josephine Community Library District 200 Northwest C Street Grants Pass, OR, 97526 United States (map)

Join the "No LNG Exports Campaign" on Thursday, July 12 in Grants Pass, OR to write comments to stop the proposed Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline and Jordan Cove LNG export terminal!

When: Thursday July 12th 5:30 pm-7 pm
Where: Grants Pass Library, 200 NW C Street Grants Pass, Oregon 97526
What: The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the US Army Corps opened a 60-day public comment period for a critical permit that, if denied, could stop the proposed Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline.

Oregon DEQ is responsible for deciding whether this massive fracked gas pipeline and export terminal would negatively impact the water quality in Oregon. Federal regulators cannot approve Jordan Cove LNG or the Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline if the Oregon DEQ decides that the project does not comply with Oregon’s water quality standards. Fracked gas pipelines in Oregon, Maryland, and New York were stopped because state agencies denied this permit.

Until the July 21st deadline, it’s up to all of us to submit comments that demonstrate that the impacts of this project would be far too devastating for the health and safety of our communities, clean water, and the local economy.

More meetings in Klamath Falls, Chiloquin, Myrtle Creek, Camas Valley, Coos Bay, Orleans, and more! Stay tuned to this website for the details and additional workshops as they are scheduled.

BEFORE THE WORKSHOP: Call DEQ to ask for a longer public comment period in our communities!

DEQ has only given our communities 60-days to write comments about how this project would impact Oregon. Can you call Richard Whitman, the Director of DEQ, at (503) 229-5696, to ask for an extension of the public comment period for Jordan Cove’s Clean Water Act certification to 120-days?
