The extended comment period on the EPA's proposed plan ends in one month.

Kristin Yount hosts another session of conversation about water policy. This time we are focusing on the Willamette harbor and the EPA's long awaited and highly contested proposed plan for clean up. A video of the June 24th public meeting is here.

On the show today we have Portland Harbor Citizen Advisory Group or "CAG" vice Chair Jacke Caulder on the show.

To find out more about the CAG please go to

Also with us will be Rahsaan Muhammad with Portland Groundworks. Rahsaan will comment on what it is like to do outreach with no budget, to a widespread population with local and federal officials throwing up walls to protect what seems to be a policy of  environmental regulatory non-compliance and structural violence toward people who have been on the river.
