BOARDMAN — The West Glen neighborhood lies along a gravel road stretching beyond the city limits of Boardman.

Mike Pearson, a retired construction worker and longtime resident, pulled up to a neighbor’s house in his white pickup truck on Saturday, March 11. He was joined by Nella Mae Parks, a senior organizer with the nonprofit Oregon Rural Action, as they and other community volunteers went door-to-door offering free water tests.
