Media outlets from Seattle to Spokane on Tuesday cited InvestigateWest’s series of articles on the political battle over fish consumption rates in 2012, a fight led by Boeing and reaching the highest levels of state government.

As we reported last night, a coalition of environmental organizations took the first step toward legal action to compel the EPA to fix Washington’s water pollution rules, which are based on outdated and incorrect assumptions about how much fish some residents eat.

Those that referred to InvestigateWest’s reporting include KPLU’s Bellamy Pailthorp, Lisa Waananen at The Inlander, Ashley Ahearn of EarthFix/KUOW, and KOMO’s Jeff Burnside.

The series was also acknowledged by environmental law firm Earthjustice in its press release announcing legal action.
