Submission Text
As a retired public school teacher I have great concern about nearly every aspect of this proposed project: delays for aid response as trains lumber by, continued burning of carbon fuels at distant locations with pollutants carried back to us by trade winds, impact on the Columbia River including fish stocks, effects of toxic substances and heavy metals found in the coal dust and therefore along the rail lines and the effects of noise resulting from countless horn blasts at countless crossings across the county and state. Please include these issues in your EIS.
