River Cleanup Costs Rile Residents

Item: River cleanup riles residents: EPA opts out of local meeting to discuss issue/Brian Walker, Press

More Info: Citizens have noticed what cleaning up the Spokane River — as the feds want — could mean to their sewer bills and growth. They think it stinks. Craig Wilcox, Todd Christensen and Len Crosby have started a grassroots effort called Citizens for Affordable Sewer Rates. The group, the Post Falls Chamber of Commerce and some local businesses had organized a meeting for Sept. 28 in Post Falls to discuss implications of a proposed river cleanup plan.

Question: What do you make of the EPA backing out of a meeting with local residents to discuss cost implications of new rules for discharge permits?
