Mountain passes reopened

Posted: Updated:
SEATTLE (AP) -- All three of Washington state's main east-west mountain passes are open again.
   Heavy snow kept one of the passes closed for most of the morning and again made commuting miserable in Spokane on the first work day of the new year.
   All three Cascade passes were closed for most of New Year's Day, but crews reopened Interstate 90 across Snoqualmie Pass Thursday evening. U.S. 2 over Stevens Pass reopened this morning. U.S. 12 over White Pass, which was closed due to a snow slide, reopened by midday.
   Avalanche warnings are in effect for the Cascades and Olympics.
   Meanwhile, flooding in populous areas in northern Oregon is raising a concern among public health officials: contaminated water. Portland city officials say there are high levels of bacteria in streams.
