The people have spoken!
The tally is in. EPA received over 2,300 comment letters in 10 languages, overwhelmingly in support of a stronger cleanup that will protect the river’s diverse communities of residents, fishers, tribes, workers, and recreational users, as well as its fish and wildlife and our public investment in cleanup. The City of Seattle and King County received another 43,000+ letters from around the county calling for a true cleanup that permanently removes toxic waste.
