June Leach Garden Video Update

June 2020 video update from Leach Botanical Gardens

David Porter, Executive Director of Leach Botanical Gardens, writes:

“The new construction video includes more views from the deck of the Tree walk.  The rails and the stainless steel cap on the railing are being installed and polished. Soon the electricians will come in and install lighting.  The structure is very aesthetically pleasing. 

In the landscape, the secondary paths are taking shape and the irrigation systems are nearing completion in the Gathering Green and Pollinator Garden areas.  The Arbor framework is assembled and next steps include pouring of the Terrace and setting the fire feature.  
I hope you enjoy the views. I am astonished that this has been the 11th construction video.  Time has flown by.

I hope you are safe and well, andI look forward to the day I can greet you in the Garden again.”

Final Public Health Assessment Report for Precision Castparts

The final Public Health Assessment Report for Precision Castparts (PCC) has been uploaded to the Oregon Health Authority (OHA)’s website. A copy of the final report was shared with attendees at the March 18, 2020 virtual meeting hosted by the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). (The public release was delayed due to OHA prioritizing the COVID-19 pandemic response.)

Although their public health assessment work is now complete, there are ongoing soil and water cleanup activities occurring at the PCC facility. PCC was also recently called into the Cleaner Air Oregon program, where it will be required to conduct a health-based risk assessment of its emissions. These activities are led by DEQ with support and consultation from the OHA Environmental Public Health team.

Questions or concerns? Contact the Environmental Public Health Team at Oregon Health Authority by email or phone at (503)-269-3689.
