The Columbia River is the largest river in the Pacific Northwest region of North America. The river rises in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia, flows northwest and then south into the US state of Washington, then turns west to form most of the border between Washington and the state of Oregon before emptying into the Pacific Ocean. The river is 1, miles (2, km) long, and Mouth: Pacific Ocean, at Clatsop County, Oregon . The goal of the Working Group is to reduce toxics in the Columbia River Basin and prevent further contamination. This State of the River Report for Toxics was identified as a priority by this multi-stakeholder group and was prepared under the leadership of EPA Region 10 with the support and guidance of the Working Group.
