LNG Planning, Community not informed

The LNG planning just missing community people’s notice!

I think this: When a hazard is considered to introduction into Washington State by anybody; it follows, inform the people first—all affected and effected communities people with written notice—who is doing just what for benefit back to which specific people. It’s these hazards and risks to the community people (lives, property, safety) and all people have the right-to-know before a hazard is introduced into their community!

Just another example of no Community Right-to-Know Act public presentation.1

We have three risk issues related to our Tacoma community and risk disclosure missing are: (1) Natural Gas ("NG") distribution systems; 1 (2) Liquid Natural Gas ("LNG"); and (3) Natural Gas-to-Methanol ("NGM") production plant. 2 All these NG related industries considered for operation within our community should have a completed and community published hazards risk analysis study and these documents should be presented to Tacoma City community (people) before any public hearings are calendared!

What’s these three physical separations?

Now I understand we have three potential hazards considered to be constructed and operated within Tacoma Port of Tacoma; therefore, there must be some dependent and positional risks shared between these three NG, NGM, and LNG facilities? But I find no community risk analysis reports to say: No risk from- or-between these three gas related locations?
