“Restoring the River: What a New Superfund Site on the Columbia Means for Public Health and Clean Water” Webinar
Restoring the River: What a New Superfund Site on the Columbia Means for Public Health and Clean Water
You may have heard the great news: The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has finally added a new Superfund cleanup site along the Columbia River, Bradford Island and surrounding waters near Bonneville Dam. This was a huge victory for Columbia River Tribes and people that care about environmental justice. But without strong public involvement, a Superfund listing alone will not lead to fast, effective toxic cleanup. That’s why I’m inviting you to a powerful webinar to gain insights on how to fight for justice for everyone that relies on a clean Columbia.

Cleanup is a top priority. For decades, the U.S. government’s actions resulted in toxic pollution at Bradford Island and in surrounding waters of the Columbia River.
