U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Washington Department of Ecology representatives,

I live in Sandpoint, Idaho, and am concerned at the potential impacts of sending a major increase in coal train traffic through Sandpoint and other communities. Our communities should be included in the environmental review. I am concerned about dust and accidents. We have had many derailments in this area. The impact of burning more coal in Asia and elswhere will be very negative for the whole planet. There are alternative energy solutions to energy needs.

Thank you for considering my input.
