Twenty-six groups, including a grocery store, fishing guides and the Washington League of Women Voters recently signed on to a letter, urging Gov. Inslee to protect seafood eaters in Washington State.
From the letter:
From Puget Sound to the Columbia River — and in countless other waterbodies across the state — catching and eating local fish and shellfish is a quintessential part of being a Washingtonian. Yet Washington’s human health water quality standards are among the nation’s least protective. As a result, the state is not doing its job to prevent cancer-causing pollutants from entering our state’s rivers and Puget Sound.
We are asking you to change this.
