Abstract : Weyerhaeuser Company proposes to construct and operate a 250-acre export facility within the City of DuPont to ship forest products from manufacturing and wood operations in Western Washington to offshore markets. In 1976, Weyerhaeuser purchased a 3,200-acre site for this purpose. The E.I. DuPont deNemours and Company used this site for the manufacture and ocean shipping of commercial explosives since 1909. Construction and operation of the proposed export facility would have a variety of adverse and beneficial impacts. In general, impacts on the physical environment would be adverse, whereas impacts on the socioeconomic environment would be both beneficial and adverse. Many adverse impacts would be mitigated. Volume I contains the environmental analysis of the impact of the proposed export facility. (Author)
