ADDITIONAL PUBLIC WORKSHOP SCHEDULED ON LOW POINT OIL PIPELINE PROPOSAL

 ADDITIONAL PUBLIC WORKSHOP SCHEDULED
 ON LOW POINT OIL PIPELINE PROPOSAL
 One additional public workshop has been scheduled for comments on a proposed 145-mile crude oil pipeline, the Washington State Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council (EFSEC) said today. The workshop will be held in Stanwood, Wash., on Jan. 8, 1992.
 EFSEC is performing a preliminary site study of a proposal by Trans Mountain Pipe Line Co. Ltd. The firm has proposed a tentative pipeline route reaching from Low Point in Clallam County, to the British Petroleum refinery southwest of Ferndale in Whatcom County. The preliminary site study will identify the issues and concerns the public, tribes and government agencies have about the proposed project.
 EFSEC has already held five informal public workshops. The workshops gave citizens an opportunity to identify the issues and express their concerns about the potential impacts of the Low Point project on the air, land, water and people. The additional workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, Jan. 8, 1992, from 7 to 10 p.m. It will be held in the Stanwood Middle School Cafeteria, 9405 - 271st, Stanwood, in northwest Snohomish County.
 EFSEC welcomes public ideas, comments and opinions on the potential impacts of the proposed project. All interested members of the public are invited to attend.
 State law requires EFSEC to review and evaluate proposed new energy projects in Washington. Trans Mountain will not be allowed to build the project without a recommendation from EFSEC and approval by the governor. No formal application has been received for the proposed Low Point project, but a detailed application is expected next year.
