After over one hundred years of industrialization that have gravely damaged the once-thriving Duwamish River, it is now one of the most hazardous toxic waste sites in the country and home to two Superfund sites. Many fish and shellfish living in the river are unsafe to eat, the salmon that pass through are met with a lack of natural habitat and polluted water, and communities along the river have limited access to the water.

The Environmental Protection Agency has released a proposed cleanup plan for the East Waterway, a portion of the second Superfund site on the river. We have an important opportunity to ensure that the cleanup plan prioritizes community health, clean water, and ecosystem recovery.
