King County's Health is at Risk - Cancer, Respiratory Illness and $$$
Our toxic whales are predicted to be all gone in just 3 generations (25 years) !!!!
It is NOT too late to Stop the PROPOSED SeaTac Third Runway!

19010 1st Ave South Burien 98148
(opposite side of the street as the grocery stores that are a few blocks north and south of this facility that are also on 1st)
For the THIRD time, the Port of Seattle is trying to get the Army Corps of Engineers and WA Dept of Ecology (DOE) to issue wetlands and water permits to allow the Third Runway to be built high above what is currently 12 Street.
Much of what's already been done enhances safety for the EXISTING airport. It's
NOTHING compared to what needs to be hauled in to build a short part time runway that INCREASES the risk of accidents. Already SIXTH in U.S. incursions (ground accidents),
the proposed runway INCREASES SeaTac's risks !
Copies of permit requests and supporting documentation are at the Burien and Des Moines Public Libraries as well as at the US Army Corps of Engineers, DOE and Port of Seattle offices.

Prepared by www.thirdrunway.homestead.com webmaster, an engineer that started out against the runway because it's dangerous and the real costs astronomical.
Four dependent runways in the air and taxing across two live runways to get to a terminal increases the risk of accidents (Ref. Final EIS).
I wish the newspapers would print the airlines' objections quoted in the Port of Seattle's 1998 FAA Passenger User Fee Application!
It's fiscally unsound if mitigation costs or costs to build and design a safe record breaking tall embankment wall design are considered.
There are environmental and health concerns too. For example, less drinking water, further damage to an already degraded aquifer/ salmon creeks/wetlands system. Also, increases health risks in an area that already has some statistically significantly higher respiratory illnesses and cancers compared to King County. New asthma data reveals the situation is getting worse fast. Stop those polluting barges and haul trucks that will clog our transportation routes. If you want clean water and breathable air, it's time to get involved with the SeaTac Third runway permitting process NOW before it is too late.
Make time to save lives - Attend at least a part of one of these crucial meetings.
