The public is invited to comment on the scope of an environmental impact
statement (EIS) that three agencies plan to jointly prepare for a
proposed bulk-cargo shipping terminal and rail spur improvements in Seattle.
Whatcom County, the Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology), and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) are together conducting the EIS process for the proposed terminal projects and will jointly produce one EIS.
Through scoping, the agencies will decide what impacts to analyze in the EIS. The three lead agencies will ask other agencies, tribes and the public to comment on what impacts the EIS should address.
The 120-day scoping period ends Monday January 21, 2013. Comments made at official sessions or submitted in writing during the scoping process will help inform the type and the geographic scope of impacts to be included in the EIS.
Public scoping meetings will also be held at the following times and locations:
