Klamath "No LNG" Clean Water Workshop

  • Yurok Tribe 190 Klamath Boulevard Klamath, CA, 95548 United States (map)

Join the campaign to stop the proposed Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline and Jordan Cove LNG export terminal on Tuesday, July 17 in Klamath, CA to write comments to stop the project.

When: Tuesday, July 17 12-3pm
Where: Yurok Tribe (190 Klamath Blvd, Klamath, CA 95548)
What: In May, 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 water quality, including water quality of the Klamath River. 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 state water quality standards. Fracked gas pipelines in Oregon, Maryland, and New York were stopped because state agencies denied this permit.

For the next two months, 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.
