After weeks of collaboration and consensus building with the various downstream stakeholders of Fairview Lake and Columbia Slough, we have been invited by DEQ to re-apply for the herbicide permit to treat the lake weeds. Their decision is still in doubt, but we are hopeful.
FLPOA has submitted the requested information and expect an answer as early as next week.

Update on weeds status.
We have suffered setbacks during March. An environmental lawyer and her organization (Northwest Environmental Advocates) have contested our application to DEQ and have suggested possible legal action. The City of Portland and Columbia Slough Watershed Council have contributed letters to DEQ supporting her. Jim Graybill provided DEQ with a specific response to her objections and point out several “facts” that were wrong or have been outdated.
Subsequently, DEQ returned our application and fees, informing us that our application was being denied due to ‘potential downstream water quality issues’ cited by NEA.
