We are looking for an area in or near Vancouver that has good air & water quality. Good well water in the area would be great. We would like a place or area that we could have a parcel of 1/2 acre or more as we raise chickens and have several pets (cats). Would also like any recommendations for a good, honest realtor in the area.

PM'd you for realtor recommendation.

Please advise us on what area of Vancouver you prefer, (Work, Schools, commute, healthcare, shopping, entertainment, clubs, sports...)

What soil types / weather do you want? Clark County ranges from 37" to 120" rain / yr. Temps / cold spots / trapped air / windy... Soils from rock, clay, silty loam. (Important if you want to garden)

Aquifier has been polluted by chroming / dry cleaners near North and South Vancouver.
Air quality varies with the wind / rainfall.... Some areas have significant wind.
SWWA Clean air board has all the county stats on Air Quality.
Remember that we are ALL downwind from a very dirty coal plant in Boardman, OR. (Scheduled to be closed in future). We are also very subject to air pollution / acid rain from China and Koreas.
