The River Plan Team will hold open houses November 3 and December 3
The City of Portland's River Plan Team announces the release of a proposed plan for the North Reach of the Willamette River in Portland (from roughly the Fremont Bridge downstream to the where the Willamette meets the Columbia). The Team is also sponsoring Open Houses to acquaint the public with the draft plan's proposal.
1. The Draft North Reach Plan: What It Is and How to Get It
The Portland Harbor is an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Superfund Site, and will eventually be cleaned up after years of planning and sampling. The study was expected to take until 2009, however, EPA has granted extensions to the responsible parties until Nov. 15, 2011. The Willamette River was slated to be reasonably clean by 2015 or so, but the process has taken longer than originally anticipated. We try to expedite the process, and promote a thorough cleanup.
