Stop WesPac’s Proposed Crude Oil Terminal in Pittsburg
More trains, more asthma and cancer, risks of spills and explosions
We are fighting a proposed oil terminal near downtown Pittsburg, California. This major industrial project would bring up to 100 rail cars of crude oil through Pittsburg every day.
The massive, 125-acre terminal would be where the old PG&E tanks are now, less than half a mile from downtown Pittsburg, and near homes, schools, parks, and the waterfront. The site lies in both a flood zone and a liquefaction zone (that means that in an earthquake, the soil acts like a liquid and buildings are easily damaged).
The threats to public health, safety, and air and water quality posed by this project are beyond unacceptable. Click here to learn more about the hazards to Pittsburg.
