Upcoming Public Meetings, Workshops and Events

This is history in the making:

  • For the first time, EPA conducted an Environmental Justice Analysis of a proposed Cleanup Plan 1for a Superfund site
  • For the first time, EPA hosted a formal public hearing in Spanish, with simultaneous English interpretation
  • For the first time, people testified at an EPA public meeting in four languages: English, Spanish, Vietnamese and Lushootseed
  • For the first time, EPA is accepting comments in a variety of new formats: online, emails, photographs, video, digital stories, Facebook, etc.

All of this is thanks to you and your support!   Now it’s time to make the last push to demand a cleanup plan that truly benefits and is accepted by the community and protects fish, wildlife and human health –  A River For All: you, residents, tribal and subsistence fishermen, recreational users, businesses, industries and workers in the Duwamish Valley.

Please join us at one of these upcoming events:
