• The City of Vancouver may owe certain residents money – June 16, 2004

    Did you pay septic tank conversion fees? The City of Vancouver may owe you money!

    From 1972 to at least 1999, many residents (citywide) paid fees into a septic tank conversion fund if their homes operated on private septic tanks instead of city sanitary sewer service. These funds were paid under monthly septic penalty fees. Some individuals may have equity in these fees in excess of $7,000 (including interest). [Read More...]

    VANCOUVER LAKE TASK FORCE MEETINGS

    To: Iloba Odum, Director, SW Regional Office, Deprtment of Ecology
    From: Dvija Michael Bertish, Chairman, Rosemere Neighborhood Association

    June 15, 2004

    Iloba,

    Attached below is an email that I sent to Betty Sue Morris last December asking to be part of the Vancouver Lake Task Force. I did not receive a response to this request, and suffice it to say that I was disappointed at what I read in the Columbian today as well as the Task Force’s media release. Everyone knows that RNA has been extremely active in this situation and that we want to participate in this process. [Read More...]

  • Cleaning up Hanford – What Senators Murray and Cantwell are doing about Hanford – June 11, 2004

    Correspondence Received from the State Attorney General’s Office Regarding Contaminants at Hanford Nuclear Reservation

    I am an Assistant Attorney General assigned to work on Hanford cleanup issues, including the high-level waste issues referred to in your letter. Most of the high-level radioactive waste at the Hanford site is stored in 177 massive, aging underground storage tanks. The U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE) has stored waste in these tanks for decades, and the older single-shell tanks are many years beyond their design life. [Read More...]

  • Media Correction: “Burnt by Pollution” – May 3, 2004

    From Rosemere Neighborhood Association

    Re: Article By Erik Robinson, Columbian Staff Writer
    “Burnt by pollution”
    April 29, 2004

    In this article, Mr. Robinson states “Leaking septic systems are a major source of microbial pollution — at least 12.7% of the total, according to a 1999 study commissioned by the City of Vancouver — but the study also laid the blame on Mother Nature.” This figure has been widely misrepresented by the City of Vancouver in an attempt to downplay the severity of contaminants that come from human waste.

  • RNA Advocates for Burnt Bridge Creek Water Quality Improvements – April 23, 2004

    The RNA met with Clark County Health Department officials in March to discuss how failing septic systems are contributing to the pollution of Burnt Bridge Creek (which feeds into Vancouver Lake). There are several homes in Rosemere that do not have access to City Sewer Service. Neighbors approached the RNA in 2001 to ask how they could get sewer service where there are no sewer mains. There are cesspools and aging sewer systems in Rosemere (and throughout Vancouver) that are not being properly maintained or inspected. Water quality tests indicate that effluent from failed septic tanks is polluting the creek and is also creating a public health risk. [Read More...]
