Comments  may be submitted to the Corps either by mail, online, or at one of two scheduled public hearings.

3. Wanted: Witnesses in a Clean Water Act case

Columbia Riverkeeper is looking for people to be witnesses in a Clean Water Act case to stop pollution.  Witnesses must be people who (1) are concerned about toxic pollution and aquatic life in the Columbia River, and (2) fish, boat, swim, hike, or do other things in or near the Columbia River between the Tri-Cities and Umatilla (or nearby).  If this is you, I'd really like to talk with you about being a witness. 

Being a witness probably won't take much of your time, but it helps Riverkeeper build an air-tight legal case to reduce the amount of toxic pollution a company puts into the Columbia.
If you can help, please email or call Miles Johnson, Clean Water Attorney, Columbia Riverkeeper, 111 Third St. Hood River, OR 97031  miles@columbiariverkeeper.org 541.490.0487.
