Most important duty in Southeast Eugene: Save the Amazon Headwater

Environmental issues surround Southeast Eugene neighborhood
By: Jaimie Goldstein

EUGENE—At last night’s city council meeting, the neighborhood of Southeast Eugene is fighting to save the endangered Amazon Headwater said city council member Betty Taylor.

The neighborhood must improve the value of the creek before it pollutes the Willamette River and questions the quality of water.  “Environmental concerns are big among the Southeast neighbors” Taylor said.

Although other neighborhoods have concerning issues more problematic than Southeast Eugene, protecting the wooded areas is important to the residents of the district as well.  It’s polluted and arsenic gets into the water.

Some land is underused and must be replaced.  “There are already things there that shouldn’t be there” said Taylor.  But saving and preserving the land is more important than development an opposed idea for the vicinity.
