OSO, Wash. (AP) - A rafting company has canceled its sight-seeing trip through the zone of last year’s devastating Oso landslide after only one trip due to low water levels.

The Daily Herald newspaper of Everett reports (https://bit.ly/1H9DxXO ) that owner of Pacific Northwest Float Trips Dave Button led one float trip past the area June 7, but the Stillaguamish River is too low to risk a second trip this summer.

A lawsuit filed in Snohomish County Superior Court Wednesday clams that the trips are illegal, and hopes to stop them permanently.

Ron Slauson, son of slide victim Lon Slauson says that Button trespassed on private property since the slide changed the river’s course and part of it now runs through the Slauson property.

The March 2014 slide killed 43 people.
