Greg Walden applauds announcement on Portland Harbor Superfund clean up

WASHINGTON, D.C. --  Rep. Greg Walden (R-Hood River) today applauded Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt’s announcement that the Portland Harbor Superfund cleanup is moving forward:

“I want to thank Administrator Pruitt and his team for making the cleanup of the Portland Harbor a national priority. After 16 years of study this announcement signifies real progress is being made under Administrator Pruitt’s leadership to finally move this cleanup forward. It is refreshing and welcome news. Cleaning up the Portland Harbor will have positive environmental and economic benefits for all Oregonians. I look forward to continuing to work closely with Administrator Pruitt to achieve the end result we’re all working towards -- a cleaned up Portland Harbor.”
