Georgia Pacific: Campaign Update

The campaign for a stronger wastewater permit for the Georgia Pacific Pulp and Paper Mill in Toledo continues (outfall is off Nye Beach). On Aug 1st, the Newport Chapter voted to file a Petition of Reconsideration with DEQ to present formal legal and scientific arguments for the agency to reconsider the terms of the July 14 issued permit. This represents the last administrative option for Surfrider to advocate for improved monitoring and additional pollution prevention technology implementation. Thank you to the nearly dozen members of Surfrider’s Oregon Environmental Issues Team (scientists, attorneys, permit afficianados, etc) who are volunteering their personal time to help pull this document together under a 60 day deadline. Also, major thanks to CRAG and NEDC for providing pro bono support to make this happen. You all ROCK!!

LNG in Coos Bay?

Residents in the Coos Bay area are currently grappling with a proposal to establish a Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) terminal in North Bend. Under the proposal a terminal for large ships would be established in Jordan Cove, as well as a 30 mile pipeline to Klamath Falls. As part of the permitting process, an application is being prepared for the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). Despite extensive testimony and inquiries at recent public forums, the Coos County Board of Commissioners and North Bend City Council have thus far refrained from taking a position on the issue. Concerns expressed by the public have included environmental, safety, aesthetics, etc. Stay tuned for more info…
