Army Corps Denies Coal Export Permits and Upholds Lummi Nation Treaty Rights

BELLINGHAM, Wash. - After careful review, the US Army Corps of Engineers issued a landmark decision to deny federal permits for SSA Marine’s proposed Gateway Pacific Terminal, a coal export facility at Xwe’chi’eXen, also known as Cherry Point, Wash. In January 2015, the Lummi Nation asked the Army Corps to reject the project because of its significant harm to their treaty-protected fisheries and ancestral lands.
