Submission Text
After looking at the Draft EIS, I continue to have questions about the negative impacts to the S. Ute Indians economically and culturally, as well as to fugitive dust/air quality concerns and to the wetlands. I understand that the Whitmore Park alternative might be a preferred alternative. However, I question "emissions not contributing significantly to global climate change." I question the 3 to 10 trains per day and its impacts on all wildlife, plant-life and people in the area.In addition, I feel like I need more information about how this will impact the potential expansion to the Tennessee Pass route and area in s. central Colorado. Thank you.
