For your information, all of these studies were done with dredges in the river unlike the recent studies that Sierra Club and its associates tried to pass off as scientific studies (they did all of their testing with no actual dredging). So please read the findings that were not allowed to be used in the lawsuits that our friendly Sierra Club and associates are trying to push as accurate and scientifically performed. By the way, they have been issued grants (we paid for) to dredge for the mercury that we have been removing all along.
