Toxic Barrels Found at Bottom of Wallowa Lake
I'll bet the members of the Blue Mountain Divers have found some pretty cool things at the bottom of lakes and waterways over the years.
This time the find was something very cool... an old metal milk jug. Then just beyond that, something not so cool....dozens of toxic barrels labeled "Weed Killer."
We're talking about 55 and 100 gallon drums.
The divers guesstimated they've been down there for decades and some of the drums have leaked their contents.
Remember, Wallowa Lake is a drinking water source for Joseph, OR.
Officials have been notified and are working on a plan to recover all of the barrels.
