Review for Grist Magazine, Inc., Seattle, WA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I found out about phytoremediation from the grist. From there, Google took me to scores of projects around the world. We want to rid a lake's bed of mercury. Some want to scrape it all out and put it in a landfill that is adjacent to a leafy neighborhood; Others, like me, say since the mercury dumping stopped in 1986, sediment and flora have safely buried the menace. The 26-mile creek which feeds the lake carries tons of sediment from the famous Tully Mud Boils. I depend on the grist to eventually run a story that says, in essence, "Let sleeping dogs lie".

Role:  Volunteer & I helped restore the creek.
