Following a recent court victory, Riverkeeper obtained internal agency documents showing why the Army Corps refused to conduct a thorough environmental impact statement for the controversial Morrow Pacific coal export terminal.
Riverkeeper has called on the Port of Vancouver to revoke the oil terminal lease. “We’re moving to expand our lawsuit to show more of the port’s illegal activities. Based on our discovery, we’ve obtained documents showing additional illegal and secret meetings,” said Brett VandenHeuvel.
Riverkeeper urges Ecology and EPA to reconsider and reject a plan that would leave dangerous waste close to the Columbia for generations.
