Millennium Bulk Terminals

MBTL submitted a Joint Aquatic Resources Permit Application (JARPA) for a proposed coal and bulk commodities export facility on February 22, 2012. The JARPA contains permit application information for federal, state, and local agencies. The coal export facility, as proposed, would be capable of receiving, stockpiling, blending and loading coal by conveyor onto ships for export. MBTL proposes bringing coal in by rail to the site, storing coal at the facility, and exporting coal on ships. The proposal includes two stages. Stage 1 plans indicate up to 25 million metric tons of coal would be handled and under Stage 2, the maximum would increase to 44 million metric tons of coal. The complete proposed facility would require construction of eight rail lines, two new docks, two shiploaders, four coal stockpile pads, and associated facilities, conveyors, and equipment.

The submission of the JARPA triggers an environmental review process under the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA). Both phases of the proposed project will be addressed under SEPA.


Full Project Information and a Project Document Library is available on the SEPA
