 PUBLIC WORKSHOPS SCHEDULED ON LOW POINT OIL PIPELINE PROPOSAL
 OLYMPIA, Wash., Nov. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Public workshops have been scheduled for early December along the proposed route for a 145-mile crude oil pipeline, the Washington State Energy Office announced today. The Washington State Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council (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.
 To allow for early citizen participation in the preliminary site study, EFSEC will hold five informal public workshops. The workshops will be an opportunity for citizens 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 workshops are scheduled from 7 to 10 p.m. at:
 Bellingham - Wednesday, Dec. 4
 Sehome High School Cafeteria
 2700 Bill MacDonald Parkway
 Mount Vernon - Thursday, Dec. 5
 Laventure Middle School Auditorium
 1200 Laventure Road
 Port Townsend - Tuesday, Dec. 10

 Port Angeles - Wednesday, Dec. 11

 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.
