Nov 11, 2013

U.S. Corps of Engineers

Dear of Engineers,

I oppose the construction of a coal export terminal to transport coal on trains and ships through the Pacific Northwest.

Diesel pollution, traffic, and coal dust will degrade the area's freshwater and marine habitat. Coal pollution is already a huge contributor to ocean acidification, mercury pollution, and threatens the survival of our critically endangered salmon runs and our resident orca population.

These impacts must be included in the scope of the Environmental Impact Statement.

Sincerely,

Don Pelton 15654 Rattlesnake Rd Grass Valley, CA 95945-8819
