Introduction to the CAG and the Portland Harbor

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.
