View comments and questions

The Co-Lead Agencies considered comments received during scoping (from September 2012 through January 2013) and summarized them in a publicly available Scoping Report. Appendix G of the Scoping Report contains all comments received during scoping.

Comments regarding the Gateway Pacific Terminal/Custer Spur proposal will continue to be collected and made publicly available. Comments received since the closing of the scoping period can be found below.

You can submit your questions or comments to staff using the Submit a Question page. Due to the volume of questions and comments, staff will not respond to all comments individually but will respond to themes through the Frequently Asked Questions page.

The table below can be filtered using the menus below or sorted using the green column headers.
