Stop Fracked Gas: Protect our waters and climate! July 19, 2018
This action alert is no longer active
Today we’re asking you to help us protect the health of our waters and the world’s climate—by speaking out against a proposal to build a fracked gas pipeline and the first LNG (liquefied natural gas) export facility on the west coast.
While this project would be built in the Pacific Northwest, it would affect the nation and the globe. Together, all of us, nationwide, can stop it.
For this massive project to proceed, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) must approve all required Clean Water Act permits. Similar fracked gas pipelines in Oregon, New York and Maryland have been stopped through the Clean Water Act process because of impacts to rivers, streams and wetlands.
You can help by submitting comments today to let agencies know why you oppose the Jordan Cove project and Pacific Connector Pipeline. Use our sample message to flag these issues of concern:
- This project would run a 229-mile fracked gas pipeline across private and public land, creating a 95-foot wide clearcut through Oregon’s forests and farms.
- It would cross nearly 500 rivers and streams, dumping sediment into drinking water and harming waters used by salmon, Native American tribes, and residents.
- The pipeline would terminate on the coast in an export facility in the Port of Coos Bay, Oregon, creating a huge risk of explosion and fire in a tsunami hazard zone.
- It would become the largest source of climate pollution in Oregon, with effects that would extend worldwide.
