MBT Health Study

Posted on 16th April 2018 at 08:51

After initially announcing that the locally-prepared health study regarding the proposed Millennium Bulk Terminals coal export facility would be ended, Cowlitz County officials now say that study will be completed. Elaine Placido with Cowlitz County Building and Planning made the announcement on Friday, after a meeting of the Health Impact Assessment Team, which is comprised of the Cowlitz County Departments of Health, Building and Planning, and the State Department of Health. After that meeting, the team determined that they should complete the report. The HIA Steering Committee and the HIA Team plan to meet early next month to talk about “process concerns,” and it’s planned that the Steering Committee will provide direction at that meeting. They also say that there will be a final workshop in the early summer, to review the final draft and to complete any recommendations that the Steering Committee may have. All materials generated during this process are currently available on the Cowlitz County web page.
