A new study on the impacts of crude oil transportation through Grays Harbor was released last month by Resource Dimensions of Gig Harbor. The group was retained by the local non-profit group Friends of Grays Harbor to conduct the independent study of two-year impacts of a hypothetical oil spill in our area in the year 2020.
While the study admits it didn’t factor in jobs created from the disaster, the group estimates between 650 and 1000 jobs and hundreds of millions of dollars in business revenue could be lost in the event of a spill at one of three proposed terminals.

Map of Statewide Concern: Oil Check Northwest has compiled the official statements of concern and opposition to Crude by Rail from cities, governments and major organizations in Washington State and put them together in an interactive map.
There are a total of 2 counties, 9 major organizations and 25 cities that have officially voiced concern or outright opposition to oil trains in their communities. With groups from the Washington State Council of Firefighters to the Columbia River Inter-Tribal Fish Commission and cities from Spokane to Aberdeen to Bellingham its clear how diverse and widespread opposition is in the Evergreen State.
You can check out the full map here. As new cities and groups consider the risks and come out in opposition let us know and we’ll be sure to add them to the list.
