Columbia Riverkeeper is looking for people to be witnesses in a Clean Water Act case to stop pollution. Witnesses must be people who (1) are concerned about toxic pollution and aquatic life in the Columbia River, and (2) fish, boat, swim, hike, or do other things in or near the Columbia River between the Tri-Cities and Umatilla (or nearby). If this is you, I'd really like to talk with you about being a witness.
