"New EPA Plan Could Delay Cleanup Of Portland Harbor Pollution"

"The Trump administration has a new plan for the Portland Harbor Superfund site that Oregon officials say could reverse progress toward cleaning up toxic pollution in the Willamette River.

Oregon environmental regulators and officials with the city of Portland have sent letters to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency expressing their concerns about a draft agreement between the EPA and some of the companies responsible for cleaning up the site.

The agreement would require redoing complicated environmental studies and investigations, they say, which would delay a process that has already taken more than 16 years."
