Submission Text
I'm concerned about the eel grass beds in the lower Columbia River and the effects coal export from the MBTL terminal proposed for Longview, WA could have on their health and attempts to restore and increase their occurrence. What will the shading from new docks proposed at the transfer area, pollutants from coal stock piles and dredging along with increased large ship wakes do to the eel grass beds and attempts at restoration?
