Draft EIS Scheduled for 2017 Release

Skagit County is overseeing the preparation of the draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Tesoro Anacortes Clean Products Upgrades Project. The draft EIS is scheduled for publication in early 2017.

The purpose of this document is to provide an impartial analysis of the proposed project. The draft EIS will include information about the proposed project, its potential environmental impacts and what could be done to avoid or minimize those impacts.

When the draft EIS is published, Skagit County will hold a public hearing and there will be a public comment period. Comments received during the comment period will be addressed in the final EIS.

Public comment is vital to an effective environmental review. Sign up for project updates at the bottom of the page to receive a notice when the draft EIS is released and information on how to submit written, verbal and electronic comments during the comment period.
