    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers today released a Draft Environmental Impact Statement to examine the incremental environmental risk, principally from vessel traffic, related to operation of the previously authorized addition of the North Wing to the BP Cherry Point dock, near Ferndale, Wash. The comment period for the draft EIS begins June 6 and closes Aug. 6, 2014. The Corps will hold public meetings in Bellingham and Seattle on July 16 and 24 respectively. Both written and oral scoping comments will be considered in the preparation of the final EIS.
