Draft Marine & Rail Oil Transportation Study Released, Public Comment Being Accepted

The Department of Ecology recently released their Draft Marine & Rail Oil Transportation Study as tasked by Governor Inslee following the 2014 Legislative Session. They also firmed up dates, locations, and times for upcoming public hearings at the end of October to accept public comment on the report. After spending the better part of an otherwise gorgeous October afternoon reading all 110 pages of the report, I can honestly say that it leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to protecting our rich marine ecosystem. Coastal advocates should take the time to get up to speed on this issue and make their voice heard over the next month.
