It is known that diesel exhaust contains toxins that harm human health. I am concerned for the impact of exhaust from 16 trains daily traveling through Longview, as well as from the 2 ships per day necessary to carry the coal to their ultimate destination. Ships do not shut down engines while in port, so these impacts would be a constant addition to the Longview air shed and its citizenry.
Please study these potential impacts and include then in the scope of the EIS.
