We are located in and around Medford, Oregon, USA. Our home water is the Rogue River that flows from the Cascade Mountain Range near Crater Lake to the Pacific Ocean. We are blessed to be in this wonderful local and value our resources and we strive to protect them.
Sorry about the bad link in the last blog post. The correct link is nolngexports.org. Belog is a repost from Rogue Riverkeeper. Thank you for all your good work.
IMPORTANT: 3 more weeks to submit your comments!
On May 22nd, a public comment period began for important Clean Water Act permit applications for the Jordan Cove LNG project. These permits are required for Pembina, a Canadian energy company, to construct and build the 229-mile Pacific Connector Pipeline and associated Jordan Cove LNG terminal. Rogue Riverkeeper and the coalition to stop this project are working hard to submit technical comments and assist YOU in writing your own. The time to speak up is now! The state of Oregon has the opportunity to stop this project in its tracks by denying these permits. Submit your personal comments and concerns regarding impacts to waterways like the Rogue and Klamath Rivers.
Help stop the pipeline by submitting your own personalized comments! Comments are due Friday July 20th, 2018.
Or Attend our Upcoming Comment Writing Workshop!

Rogue Riverkeeper staff will be on hand to assist with detailed specifics, talking points, letter templates and more. There will be a short presentation about the permits, what they mean, what they do, and how denials of these permits will stop this project in its tracks.
