Pollution Update 6-26-14

Oregon Department of Environmental Quality is accepting comments through 4:30 pm Monday, June 30, on a proposed $410,000 settlement concerning groundwater contamination caused by McAyeals Cleaners (located immediately south of the Eugene Public Library in downtown Eugene). Visit http://goo.gl/miiyvW for info on commenting, and http://goo.gl/7kOLXt to view the proposed settlement. If more than 10 people (or a group with more than 10 members) request it, DEQ will hold a public meeting on the proposed settlement. 

The city of Eugene sent notice of violation letters to Kendall Ford and Kendall Auto Group late last week for failing to monitor and unpermitted discharges at its 344 & 345 Goodpasture Island Road facilities in Eugene.
