My name is Hope Rollis. I live in Bellingham, Wa.
I am concerned about the contamination of the ranches and farms in the entire area surrounding the proposed site. That is, farms and ranches within a minimum of 10 miles of the site.
It is foreseeable that coal dust can and will contaminate the animals and crops in a wide area surrounding the site.
Any and all coal dust must be mitigated to prevent contamination of that local food supply.
Please study the impact of coal dust on the ranches and farms in the area.
