Clean Water or Gas Export?
The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) are asking for public comments regarding impacts of a proposed fracked gas export terminal and pipeline across the salmon watersheds of southwest Oregon.
If this water quality certification is denied the Jordan Cove project is dead in the water.
Join Rogue Riverkeeper for a comment writing workshop on Wednesday February 25th at 6:30pm in the big meeting room at the Medford Library. We'll discuss the decision before DEQ, some of the relevant legal issues, and how we can bring up our concerns about water quality impacts in ways the agency will hear.
