Final chance to stop Tacoma Liquified Natural Gas Project – Attend Aug 27 hearing, send comments to PSCAA
Send Comments to Reject Permit for Tacoma LNG Project
From Power Past Fracked Gas
Despite opposition from the Puyallup Tribe, over 80 community organizations, and Governor Inslee, Puget Sound Energy (PSE) is still working to complete their fracked gas project in Tacoma. This project is an affront to our climate, health, and safety.
PSE needs one final permit from the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency (PSCAA). The agency is currently accepting public comments on their draft plan to issue this permit.

Even as Washington begins a transition to 100% clean electricity,Puget Sound Energy continues its plans for an 8-million-gallon fracked gas facility on the Tacoma Tideflats. Despite opposition from the Puyallup Tribe, over 80 community organizations, and Governor Inslee, PSE has moved forward with this project without a permit from the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency (PSCAA).
PSCAA announced their plan to issue the final permit required for PSE’s proposal, ignoring the latest science on fracked gas. This unacceptable decision disregards the climate, health, and safety impacts of this proposed fracked gas facility.
On August 27th, PSCAA will accept comments from the public at a hearing. This is the last opportunity we have to urge the agency to reject the permit for PSE’s dangerous project.
At every stage, PSCAA has moved this project forward based on deeply flawed environmental analysis, and without the government-to-government consultation with the Puyallup Tribe that is required under law. Now, we must object to this decision and call on the agency to reconsider and deny PSE’s permit.
