Longview’s Millennium Bulk Terminals permitting update

Dry Bulk Magazine

Back in February 2012, Millennium Bulk Terminals (MBT) submitted its Shorelines permit application for the coal export terminal. The Shorelines permits are needed for the building of the docks and dredging of the berth pocket. After 10 public meetings across the state, MBT is moving into the final stretch of the permitting.

Over twenty local, state and federal permits will be needed. The Environmental Impact Statements (EIS) are the documents that inform regulatory agencies of the details of the company’s project and they will use those studies when issuing permits. Following the publication of the Final EIS from the county and the state, Millennium filed the Critical Areas Permit application to Cowlitz County on 22 May 2017. The County is reviewing and processing the application.

The Department of Ecology (ECY) is issuing a public notice regarding MBT-Longview’s request for a Clean Water Act section 401 water quality certification for the proposed Coal Export Terminal. At the agency’s request, MBT has withdrawn and resubmitted our permit application simultaneously using the agency’s form for this purpose.
