Rhode Island Requests Appeal of Coast Guard LOR in Weaver’s Cove LNG Proceeding

The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (DEM) has filed an appeal of the U.S. Coast Guard Captain of the Port’s determination regarding waterway suitability for the Weaver’s Cove LNG project. The DEM alleges that the Captain of the Port’s decision was arbitrary and capricious, the Coast Guard’s procedures violate that National Environmental Policy Act and are deficient and unreasonable, and the Coast Guard’s treatment of “resource gaps” in the current Weaver’s Cove LNG proposal are “factually inaccurate and unreasonable.” The DEM’s filing is available in the FERC eLibrary under Docket No. CP04-36.
