Oregon PSR is a member of the Portland Harbor Community Coalition advocating for thorough cleanup of the north stretch of the Willamette River in Portland.
We need your help to ensure that Willamette Cove is not used as a toxic waste dump. The Metro tri-county government has been hiding behind confidential cleanup agreements and its attorneys in explaining why it cannot support a more aggressive cleanup of this site.
On Thursday, December 10, at 2 p.m., the Metro Council will hear a resolution on Willamette Cove. The resolution does some good things but it misses on the most important point, agreeing to remove all contaminated waste that exceeds human health risk levels from the site. Please help us send Metro Council a strong message!
