Environmental Justice Group Challenged Environmental Review for Oakland Marine Terminal Project. An environmental justice organization challenged the Port of Oakland’s approval of the Eagle Rock Aggregates Oakland Terminal Project and the supplemental environmental impact report (SEIR) for the project. The organization alleged that the project—a marine terminal that would import, store, and distribute sand and gravel—would result in increased air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, among other impacts, and would exacerbate existing problems in West Oakland. The organization further alleged that the SEIR neglected whole categories of impacts, including analysis and mitigation of impacts on greenhouse gas emissions, fine particulate emissions, and energy.
