MORROW COUNTY — Oregon U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley met Sunday, Jan. 15, with homeowners in Boardman and Irrigon to discuss high nitrate levels in private wells across Morrow County.
“It first came up in a town hall, a county commissioner raised it,” he said. “I was familiar with the issue of nitrates in the midwest being a problem. It immediately rang bells of concern for me. Now we have the money to really come to understand the scope of the nitrate problem and hopefully get some planning toward the right solution.”
