LNG Public Meeting: Department of State Lands

Attend a Rally and Public Meeting in Medford Jan 6th to tell the Department of State Lands to DenyPermits for Jordan Cove and the Pacific Connector Pipeline!

If permits, currently being considered by the Oregon Department of State Lands, are approved as part of the the Jordan Cove and Pacific Connector project, a 230-mile 36” pipeline would be constructed across the Klamath, Rogue, Umpqua, Coquille and Coos watersheds to export fracked gas overseas. The installation of this pipeline would scar our watersheds by digging trenches straight across hundreds of waterways, damaging hundreds of acres of important wetlands, and resulting in millions of cubic yards of material being scooped up from the sensitive Coos Bay estuary.
The Department has the clear authority to deny permits for activities – like building an unprecedentedly large fossil fuel export project – that would interfere with public use of our waterways for things like recreation. It has the same authority to deny permits if the project proves inconsistent with the conservation of the waterways. Further, the Department must consider public safety issues with a project that would involve massive storage for volatile fossil fuels and tanker traffic that pose a serious risk to the towns of North Bend and Coos Bay. 
Take Action: Attend a Public Hearing! Tell DSL to deny permits for Jordan Cove!
DSL is holding two public meetings on the coast and in Medford. We need to pack the house to give comments and show state agencies that Oregon is not a sacrifice zone!
