Over the past three months, tens of thousands of people have submitted comments to the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) demanding our agency denies permits for the Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline. This is a record breaking number of comments EVER submitted to DEQ!
This Thursday at the Medford DEQ office, impacted landowners, tribal members, youth, anglers, rafters, business owners, health professionals, local elected officials, and allies from across the region are gathering for a rally to ask DEQ to protect our home by denying the Clean Water Act permit Jordan Cove needs to move their project forward. Can we count on you to be there on Thursday?
WHEN: Thursday, August 16, 11:00 am-12:00 pm
WHERE: Medford DEQ office (221 Stewart Ave)
The rally includes energizing speeches, chants, beautiful art, and a celebration of the tens of thousands of comments submitted to DEQ.
Smoke or clear skies, we’ll be there and we hope you’ll join us too. See you on Thursday!
Allie and the “No Pipeline Team”
P.S. Don’t forget to submit your comments before the August 20 deadline online here!

Dear Mr. Krug and Mr. Stine:
Thursday, July 5, 2018
|Statewide, OR—The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality has extended by 30 days the public comment period on an application for water quality certification from the Jordan Cove Energy Project. DEQ received a large number of public requests for an extension. The project proposes building a liquefied natural gas facility on the North Spit of Coos Bay near North Bend and a connecting roughly 230-mile pipeline near Malin that would cross Klamath, Jackson, Douglas and Coos counties.|

Rogue Riverkeeper has taken on the LNG pipeline with the goal to stop the pipeline once and for all. One of the ways we can help is to write letters and make phone calls. Come to this workshop to get ideas on how to write an effective letter. Below is their message.

This message just came from Rogue Climate. The Rogue Climate staff have been working very hard to stop the LNG pipeline. Lets support them with our phone calls, letters, and they need financial support to keep this going.
Today, the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and the US Army Corps opened a 60-day public comment period for a critical permit that, if denied, could stop the proposed Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline.
Oregon DEQ is responsible for deciding whether this massive fracked gas pipeline and export terminal would negatively impact the water quality in Oregon. Federal regulators cannot approve Jordan Cove LNG or the Pacific Connector fracked gas pipeline if the Oregon DEQ decides that the project does not comply with Oregon’s water quality standards. Fracked gas pipelines in Oregon, Maryland, and New York were stopped because state agencies denied this permit.
For the next two months, it’s up to all of us to submit comments that demonstrate that the impacts of this project would be far too devastating for the health and safety of our communities, clean water, and the local economy.
Next week we’ll send out more information about comment writing workshops across the region and information for submitting your comments to the agencies. Until then, here are three ways you can help stop the pipeline and LNG export terminal:
1. Call DEQ to ask for a longer public comment period in our communities:
DEQ has only given our communities 60-days to write comments about how this project would impact Oregon. Can you call Richard Whitman, the Director of DEQ, at (503) 229-5696, to ask for an extension of the public comment period for Jordan Cove’s Clean Water Act certification to 120-days?
2. Volunteer to help turn out people to write comments. Sign up for volunteer shifts HERE.
3. Donate HERE to help support comment workshops across the route of the pipeline.
