Submission Text
Powder River Basin coal proposed for export from the Millennium Bulk Terminal site, is particularly combustible in storage piles due to rising internal temperatures of the piles. Scoping should require the applicant to prepare an extensive and detailed plan for control of stock pile temperatures and remedial action for dangerously rising temperatures to prevent fires. An emergency response plan must be developed for the site.
