DSL’s substantial concerns, issued in an April information request, includes the project’s impact on Oregon’s waterways, public safety, failure to demonstrate a need for the project, and the company’s lack of local land-use permits. “The Department of Environmental Quality denied Clean Water Act permits for Jordan Cove LNG because there are not reasonable assurances that the project will comply with Oregon’s water quality standards, which the agency laid out in over 200-pages critiquing the project,” said Stacey Detwiler, Conservation Director of Rogue Riverkeeper. “We urge the Department of State Lands to hold this project to the same standards that the Department of Environmental Quality did last week and deny this permit.”read more
