We invite you to attend the first of two online public meetings to learn about the proposed Goldendale Energy Storage project and comment on what you think should be studied in an environmental review.
Tips for attending the event

We've determined that the proposed Goldendale Energy Storage Project is likely to have significant environmental impacts requiring full evaluation in an environmental impact statement (EIS).
The first step toward developing an EIS is called scoping. Community, stakeholders, tribes and others are invited to weigh in on what should be considered in the scope of a full EIS. The EIS will examine possible significant and adverse impacts resulting from the construction and operation of the proposed project. This includes impacts to both the natural environment and nearby communities through study of air quality, plant and animal habitat, transportation, water and cultural resources. It will also analyze how impacts can be reduced or eliminated through mitigation.
This review is done under SEPA, the State Environmental Policy Act.
