The PCB product purchasing ordinance passed City Council this week on June 2.
The new ordinance requires City Hall purchasing managers to give preference to PCB-free products ranging from road paint to packaging materials. The goal is to cut the amount of PCBs entering into the Spokane River and other waterways from largely unregulated sources.
