December 16, 2010: Duwamish River Clean Up Options, the EPA and the South Park Community
When the Duwamish River was declared a Superfund site ten years ago, the intent was to right the damage caused by one hundred years of industrialization. The Superfund law was enacted to clean up hazardous substances that endanger public health and the environment. The threat was typified by the Love Canal disaster in New York and the Valley of the Drums in Kentucky. In this week’s Green Acre Radio, Martha Baskin takes us to a public meeting about clean up options the EPA proposes for Seattle’s embattled river.
