The Columbia River Estuary Action Team and Columbia Riverkeeper are on the Astoria City Council agenda for Monday, August 7, asking the Council to pass a resolution opposing any proposed oil-by-rail terminals.  A copy of the draft resolution is attached.  The meeting begins at 7pm on the second floor at City Hall.

Here is a link to a study by the Washington Attorney General’s Counsel for the Environment concluding that a significant oil spill related to the operation of the proposed Tesoro Savage oil terminal in Vancouver, WA could release up to 8 million gallons of crude oil into the Columbia River Estuary – closing fishing, harming habitat, and causing hundreds of millions in damage to the Columbia River Estuary.

Show your support by attending and testify if you wish.
