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.

The impacts of this and similar proposals here in Washington would have wide impacts on the health of people living near the railroad routes and a far greater impact on the health of the people at the terminals.

In particular the Columbia rivers fisheries would be impacted by the coal dust with its accompanying heavy metals.

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

Thank you

Stanley Willard 835 Benton St. Port Townsend, WA 98368 360 344-4038
