My name is Chom Greacen and I am a San Juan County resident and property owner. The economy of San Juan County relies upon the environmental beauty of the islands. I am concerned about the potential impacts from the proposed Millennium Bulk Terminals at Longview to the economy of San Juan County. Please thoroughly study the following:
What would be the adverse impacts including the increased risk of a major oil spill from the increased barge traffic (from any of Washington State’s five refineries that would have to travel through and/or adjacent to the waters of San Juan County) associated with the propulsion fueling operations required by the proposed Millennium coal export terminal’s cargo vessels? What would be the loss of property values and what would be the loss of tourism, real estate sales, and housing construction related tax revenue from a major oil spill in San Juan County?
