(Seattle, WA)  --  New U.S. EPA director Scott Pruitt is facing his first lawsuit, and it's coming from caretakers of the Columbia River. The Columbia Riverkeeper group filed a suit in federal court in Seattle on Thursday demanding the EPA work to protect salmon from hot summertime temperatures in the Columbia and Snake Rivers. The suit alleges the EPA has ignored the high temperatures, which reportedly resulted in the deaths of nearly 250-thousand adult sockeye salmon because they were prevented from swimming upstream.
