Legal Expert Says Army Corps Rejection of Permit for Gateway Coal Export Terminal Looks “Pretty Air Tight”

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Christopher Coats in SNL:Few options have emerged for reviving the Gateway Pacific coal export terminal in Washington following the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ recent decision to halt permitting of the controversial project, according to stakeholders involved.On May 9, the Corps announced that it halted the permitting process for the terminal in response to a challenge from the Lummi Nation over fishing waters protected by tribal agreements. The project would have been one of the largest coal terminals ever built in the U.S.Project-backer SSA Marine, which previously suspended its own environmental review, stopped short of offering any clear plan for challenging the Corps’ decision when it was announced. However, a representative did tell S&P Global Market Intelligence that it is exploring all possible options for reviving the project.Mark Squillace, a University of Colorado law professor and former member of the U.S. Department of the Interior solicitor’s office, cast some doubt on the ability to challenge the decision in court. Squillace called the case “pretty air tight.”Specifically, Squillace cited a part of the decision that stated: “To evaluate impacts on treaty fishing rights, the Corps conducts a de minimis determination to determine whether the impacts to treaty fishing rights are of legal significance. If it is legally significant, then Congressional authorization would be required to allow the impact. The process includes request for specific information in the form of declarations regarding the Lummi’s fishing and crabbing activities at or near the proposed project.”“Importantly … the company does not appear to contest this point so it does not seem like it could be raised on appeal,” Squillace said. “And if that is indeed the legal standard, then I think the Corps has offered a solid justification for their decision.”For that reason, he said the court would be unlikely to find the Corps’ actions “arbitrary and capricious.”“It would not surprise me if the company appeals and there may be procedural issues that are not evident from the face of the decision, but on the merits I think the Corps is on pretty solid ground,” Squillace said.Full article $:   https://www.snl.com/InteractiveX/article.aspx?ID=36496440&KPLT=4 Legal Expert Says Army Corps Rejection of Permit for Gateway Coal Export Terminal Looks “Pretty Air Tight”last_img read more

USPS hopes to install 100 anthrax detectors this year

No Comments

first_imgJun 10, 2004 (CIDRAP News) – The US Postal Service (USPS) has begun installing anthrax-detection systems in major mail-processing centers and hopes to have the equipment in 100 facilities by the end of this year. After testing the Biohazard Detection System (BDS) for nearly 2 years in Baltimore, the USPS began installing the system in major processing and distribution centers in March, said Bob Anderson, a USPS spokesman in Washington, DC. See also: The detection system includes an air-collection hood over machines that handle “raw” mail collected from mailboxes, Anderson said. Air samples are drawn to a cabinet where they are tested automatically for anthrax. The system can be expanded to test for other pathogens, but currently it only tests for anthrax, he said. Besides testing the system initially in Baltimore, the Postal Service ran one-month tests of the equipment at 14 facilities last summer, Anderson said. The equipment was removed from those plants after the tests. “Equipment has been installed and I believe it’s up and running in six of those facilities,” Anderson told CIDRAP News. “I believe the equipment is arriving at the seventh tomorrow.” He said installation of the system is moving generally from east to west, with Pittsburgh and Cleveland among the first cities to get the equipment. He said no evidence of anthrax has been detected by any of the systems so far.center_img He said plans call for installing the system in about 100 facilities by the end of November of this year and completing the project with another 183 installations in 2005. Northrop-Grumman, primary contractor for the project, is doing this year’s work under a $175 million contract, he said. The amount for next year’s work has not yet been determined. USPS news releases (click on Jun 4 release, “Biohazard Detection System Deployment Resumes”)http://www.usps.com/communications/news/press/welcome.htm USPS officials are meeting with local and state health officials in each city before the equipment is installed, Anderson said. “We have to meet with those officials and first responders and work out an emergency response plan in case we do detect anthrax in the mail,” he said. The inconclusive results “meant that a small, but unacceptable, number of tests had to be rerun to obtain conclusive results,” Azeezaly S. Jaffer, USPS vice president for public affairs, said in the news release. “Had anthrax been present, it would have been detected by the BDS. BDS has proven that it consistently and reliably detects anthrax in the mail.” The USPS decided to add the equipment after the anthrax-by-mail attacks in the fall of 2001. The attacks killed five people, including two postal workers, and caused 17 other cases of illness. The installation begun in March was suspended Apr 28 for testing to find out why some systems were yielding “inconclusive” results, the USPS reported. The project resumed Jun 4 after the problems were identified and corrected, the agency said in a news release.last_img read more
