* From TJ - Tumwater backs ProLogis warehouses, Olympian. City dismisses appeal by neighborhood group that will allow a large warehouse to be built before city passes an ordinance limiting warehouse sizes;
". . . the Salmon Creek Basin appeal alleged that the city's environmental ruling overlooked key potential effects. Those included, for example, the likelihood that the ProLogis project would pollute the Bush municipal wellhead."
