SPOKANE -- Wednesday's hearing at the Spokane Convention Center was the second of five that agencies are holding across Washington on a proposed coal export terminal at Longview.
The hearings will help the Corps of Engineers, Ecology Department and Cowlitz County plan the environmental review for the $643 million Millennium Bulk Terminals project on the Columbia River.
The first hearing in Longview on Sept. 17 drew about 2,000 people, divided between environmental opponents and business supporters. The remaining public hearings will be Tuesday in Pasco, Oct. 9 in Vancouver, Wash., and Oct. 17 in Tacoma.
Two other coal export terminals are proposed in the Northwest, one near Bellingham and one on the Columbia at Boardman, Ore.
All would be used to ship coal from Montana and Wyoming to Asia.
