After over 100 concerned Bay Area residents packed a meeting on the San Francisco to Stockton Navigation Improvement Project, the Army Corps of Engineers announced that they will keep the public comment period open and schedule more in-person meetings in an effort to properly respond to community concerns. Now is the time to turn up the heat!
The Army Corps of Engineers and their project sponsors will be pushing to get this dangerous project approved in 2020. It gifts four oil refineries with a nearly $15 million annual subsidy, pumps up the production of petroleum products, multiplies the risk of oil spills in our waters, threatens marine life, and increases greenhouse gas emissions and toxic pollution along the refinery corridor.
We need you to submit a public comment to protect San Francisco Bay from becoming the supertanker highway of the Pacific and prevent increased refining in the Bay. This year alone, we’ve had 10 whales die in SF Bay from ship strikes and malnutrition, and already communities around refineries are suffering from higher than acceptable levels of air pollution.
