One thought on “With focus on toxics, Duwamish cleanup could leave other health problems unsolved

  1. Needy residents are not fishing in the Duwamish for their dinner and to say so is an outright lie. The Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition has been saying this, among other things, for years and it is not true. I have been a homeowner and employed in South Park since 1985 and the only fishing I have ever seen in the Duwamish is done only during the yearly salmon runs by sport fishermen (myself included) and the Muckleshoot Tribe. The spawning salmon are safe to eat as they do not feed in the river and have even been sold by Safeway. I have reported this fact to local media and the EPA who have both expressed skepticism of claims made by the DRCC.
