DEQ orders urgent soil removal at homes near JH Baxter plant



Beyond Toxics responds...

“This “recent” discovery of what we as a community have suspected for decades is bittersweet. Yes, we wanted to know exactly what has been and is still poisoning our neighborhood, but this “victory” comes at the cost of several community homes knowing for a SCIENTIFIC FACT that they are living on dangerous soil. That’s scary and beyond not ok. This makes me want to fight harder for west Eugene. Fight harder to help end the environmental racism that west Eugene faces every day.”
