Water Poisoning Meeting Oct 15th 7PM Williams Grange


There are two forest sites that will probably be sprayed with herbicides in the next several months. These herbicides poison our water ways: Rock Creek,Clapboard Gulch, Sugarloaf Gulch, Lone Creek, Goodwin Creek, West Fork Creek, East Fork and Williams Creek, the Applegate and Rogue River. The herbicides kill the soil, plants, animals on land and water and then poison inhabitants down stream. Aerial spray has the potential of herbicides causing damage to unintended areas. Oregon Department of Forest (ODF) mandates, that forest owners who have clearcut their forest, destroy vegetation that will compete with the plantations of new Douglas Fir.

Come to a meeting on Oct 15th 7PM Williams Grange to learn more and help change the ODF laws. We need to protect our community from these poisons.
