This December the Department of Environmental Quality will hold three hearings in Oregon where the public may comment on Ambre Energy’s proposed Morrow Pacific Coal Export Project.

Under the proposed system, coal would be strip-mined from Montana and Wyoming, and brought by train to Boardman, Oregon.

From there, the coal would be shipped by barge down the Columbia River for sale overseas.

If completed, barge traffic along the Columbia River is expected to double.

For more on the coming hearings, KBOO’s Zeke Harrington spoke with Jasmine Zimmer-Stucky, community organizer for Columbia Riverkeeper.
