This project will provide support for the Spokane River Forum conference to facilitate community discussion of the tool of water quality variance. As a follow-up to the conference, the Law Clinic will research and produce a white paper examining the applicability of variances to the problem of PCBs on the Spokane River. This will be distributed through a short public presentation, upon its completion, and through the Spokane River Forum’s stakeholder list, which includes governmental, industrial, and community stakeholders.
