I live on a DRINKING WATER LAKE. The houses have pipes which go into the lake. Untreated water flows up the pipe and comes out the taps. Drinking water lakes are supposed to have buffer-zones to maintain the drinkable quality of the water.
I find out now that NO ONE is testing the water or regulating the types of activities that can go on in and around the lake. A swathe of the forested buffer-zone was clearcut by a logging company owned by Weyerhauser. Logging, prohibited (supposedly) in the winter months, proceeded most rapidly during the winter months.
There's a salmon stream that feeds into the lake and is affected by all this: Kennedy Creek.
Wildlife - that is, deer, otters, and other animals including cougars - don't seem to be around anymore. The only animal that's been seen lately is a fawn - crushed on the road by a logging truck.
Rot in Hell, Weyerhauser - along with Hanson Motors in Olympia and Wells Fargo the big bank.
Hanson Motors of Olympia: For selling my elderly mother, who had cancer, a new Daiwu. Yes, those salesmen are scum.
Wells Fargo: For calling me up after my mother died and saying, "You owe us $12,000 on the car* and we will pursue you forever. We will never give up." <---Direct quote
