Spokane River PCB Contamination

Spokane, WA

Environmental Stewardship Concepts serves as technical reviewer for site remediation on contaminated sediments behind a dam on the Spokane River. The sediment contamination is principally PCB-related. As a result, fish advisories have been issued for the Spokane River, and locals are warned that eating the fish poses a threat to their health. Restoring the river to prior levels of ecological integrity is a primary focus of this remediation.

ESC has provided numerous comments on reports for the Center of Justice as well as a report on the effects of PCBs on fish health and the resultant consequences for humans that may consume them.
