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

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

Re: Docket number 2013-19738: Comment on Millennium Bulk Terminals Longview LLC Coal Export Terminal

Please consider all the impacts of the coal export terminal at Longview. The coal that arrives at the terminal will be carried by trains through Montana, Idaho and Washington. The noise, fumes, dust and traffic problems generated by the additional trains should be considered for all the communities along the way.

I also think that the coal that would be transported to Longview shouldn't be mined at all. There is no need to tear up agricultural land in Montana to export smog-generating coal to Asia. China in particular already has a pollution problem.

Sincerely,

Wendy Wheeler 1716 Highland St. Helena, MT 59601
