With so much going on, the Clark Fork River upstream and down has been getting a lot of media attention lately. Last week the Missoulian featured coverage of possible impacts, and benefits, to fisheries associated with the powerhouse and dam removal. A University of Montana student journalism project on the community of Opportunity and the Milltown Superfund project ran in the Missoulian on Sunday and Monday. Headlines include Toxic turmoil; Milltown Dam leaves a long legacy; Environmental restoration is big business; and EPA engineer feels safe on the Opportunity Ponds site.
