Jordon Cove would be an environmental disaster for Oregon. The planned project, including the Pacific Connector Pipeline, would cross almost 500 wetlands, waterways, streams, and rivers and would need the largest dredging project for any coastal bay or estuary in Oregon's history.
Oregonians thought this project had been defeated but it raised its head again following the election of Pres. Trump.
Jordon Cove will make it impossible for Oregon's already approved climate and energy plans to succeed, and would doom the more aggressive plans we actually need!
The project has proposed building three 30 megawatt generators to provide power to the plant itself, which would require a permit from the State of Oregon’s Energy Facility Siting Council. But Jordon Cove has requested an exemption. Whether a permit is required or an exemption is given, a public comment period is required.
That gives us an opportunity to have our voices heard!
