Next Steps

During the adjudicative hearings in Vancouver and Olympia, EFSEC was presented with evidence from both supporters and interveners of the proposed terminal, and is now tasked with making a recommendation to Governor Jay Inslee after deliberations. EFSEC staff is also preparing a final environmental impact statement that will be reviewed by the Governor, who has final say in whether to approve the project.

While EFSEC is responsible for reviewing for compliance with state regulations, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is reviewing the aspects of the proposal under its federal jurisdiction.  Specifically, the Corps is reviewing the proposed modifications to the existing dock.
