Tons Of Garbage To Float Down Willamette River – With Updates

Eugene, Oregon is now known as a great place to be homeless nationally. Eugene’s Mayor, Kitty Piercy and city council have promoted homelessness to the point of disaster. In this video you can see the extreme looming environmental catastrophe. With Oregon’s rainy winter, the Willamette River’s water level will rise and wash tons of hazardous waste down stream to Portland, Oregon. This video was made November 7, 2014.


Several local news organizations picked up the story. The first was a local newspaper called the Eugene Weekly on November 13, 2014. They did a good investigative article into the situation, interviewing and questioning several local officials.
