The Environmental Protection Agency is suggesting to lessen the amount of cleanup in Seattle’s only river, the Duwamish. The proposal includes letting higher levels of toxins remain in the ground adjacent to the site and letting a former metal company leave toxins on the bottom of the river.

People living in the area already experience the worst air pollution in the city and their life expectancy is 8-years lower than the rest of Seattle.

You can learn more and sign on to a petition protesting the EPA’s proposal on the Duwamish CleanUp website.
