Dear U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, WA Department of Ecology, and Cowlitz County Commission,

I strongly oppose the construction of a coal export terminal at Longview, WA .

This terminal would negatively affect communities by increasing coal train traffic, polluting our air and local waterways and damaging aquatic ecosystems and fishing areas on the Columbia River. Increased tanker traffic has the potential for more shipping accidents and spills.

I urge you to consider these impacts in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement.

Thank you

Barbara Collins
