DEQ issues a decision on Jordan Cove’s application for 401 W
How many chances do they get to apply for a favorable decision? Oregon elected representatives took 160 thousand dollars that we know about in campaign contributions from the pipe line company. How much will they get the Next Time Around?
Statewide, Ore. – Today the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality issued a decision on Jordan Cove’s application for a Section 401 Water Quality Certification. The certification is required for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to issue permits for the project.
DEQ’s decision is to deny the requested certification at this time. However, DEQ’s action is being made “without prejudice.” This means that the applicant may reapply for the certification, and submit additional information that could result in a different decision.
