DTE 4.8.14 - Clean Water talks

On this week's show we welcomed Zach Bloxhem, a Gonzaga law student LIVE in the studio to discuss a Clean Water Act case in Idaho and the general importance of the Clean Water Act. Then, calling in from Bozeman, Montana we had Guy Alsentzer the Executive Director and Waterkeeper at Upper Missouri WATERKEEPER. Guy talked about clean water issues in the state of Montana and a legal challenge filed by Upper Missouri WATERKEEPER to protect the Smith River. We went in to extra innings this week with a show that clocked in at sixty minutes, but it's well worth the listen as it's not only one of our best interviews but TWO of our best interviews. Enjoy.

It all started as a blog in May of 2007. Well actually, it all started as a frustration over a lack of environmental coverage in Spokane. Since then the blog has evolved to what it is today - and into this radio show. Be sure to check us out, bookmark us, subscribe to our RSS, and spread the word. Down To Earth is an environmental issues blog committed to reporting environmental news and sustainability throughout the Inland Northwest. Join us in developing an eco-consciousness here or wherever you may be.
