    Weyerhaeuser massive spraying near fish and domestic streams

    This will be published in Eugene  Weekly on Thursday, but wanted to give you heads up!  21,000 acres of spraying just for roads and roadsides within 10 feet of fish streams and people’s domestic(and irrigation) water supply streams all over Lane County and parts of Douglas just in these two notifications.  Probably happening all over Weyco’s holdings statewide!!!
