The Daily News reports state, Cowlitz County and federal officials will still work together on much of the review of the Millennium dock in Longview. But now they will develop two separate environmental impact statements, one by the corps and one by the state Department of Ecology and Cowlitz County.
The Longview terminal is one of three in the Northwest proposed to ship coal from Montana and Wyoming to Asia. The others are at Cherry Point outside of Bellingham, and one in Boardman, Ore. The Department of Ecology announced in July it would do a two-year statewide study on the impact of exporting millions of tons of coal through the terminal in Whatcom County.
