Oregon Public Broadcasting's "Oregon Field Guide" program has recently run a feature on Columbia River toxins featuring several Oregon AFSCME Local 3336 (DEQ) members. The program originally ran on Jan. 31, and repeats on Feb. 3.

 

If you can't catch the program live, you can view it online.

 

"The mid-Columbia River, above Bonneville Dam, has never been tested extensively for contamination until now," says Local 3336 member-activist and water analyst Karen Williams. "DEQ conducted one of its largest surveys and found the middle river shares many of the same contaminants as the lower river. Water samples generally came out clean, but fish showed levels of mercury, PCBs and other pollutants that could present health concerns to those who eat lots of fish.

 

"I think people would be interested to see the program, and see our members at work."
