A great river that runs through our hometown has been made into a sewer. Nearly everyone who has spent time on the river is disgusted, but is any effective action being taken? |
I'd be very interested in hearing from people who believe that the condition of the Willamette is a disgrace, and who are willing to organize some effective action to restore the river. Portland's sewer system frequently overflows and sends disgusting dreck into the river. Willamette River-keeper is one organization that works to attempt to restore the river. Government has clearly failed in its responsibilities to protect the watershed.
