Washington state is scheduled to release a detailed environmental assessment Tuesday of the proposed oil terminal at the Port of Vancouver. The public will have until January to comment on the proposal.
The report considers the oil-by-rail project’s possible impacts to air, land and water. Things like pollution, noise, earthquake hazards, and risks for fish and wildlife.
The Vancouver Energy Project is a joint venture backed by Tesoro Corporation, an oil company, and Savage Industries, a logistics firm.
