Toxic pool has PCB levels 200,000 times above safe levels
- Editor H2ONotes [ 2/24/2005 - 07:58 ] # ST. CLAIR SHORES, Mich. (AP) — A newly discovered pool of
cancer-causing PCBs 200,000 times above safe levels has been found
here, Macomb County Public Works Commissioner Anthony V. Marrocco said.
Environmental Consulting and Technology Inc. of Detroit uncovered
the polychlorinated biphenyls under sewer lines 20 feet below Harper

The PCBs might have leaked from transformers discarded decades ago
in landfills in the area, Marrocco told The Detroit News for a

Water, water everywhere,
- Editor H2ONotes [ 2/23/2005 - 07:10 ] # 2005
may hold the answer to a decades-old question - can Milwaukee County
and its suburbs co-exist?
Divining a solution will likely have
Lake Michigan water as the focus. Milwaukee has been steadily
shrinking in population during the past five decades, with many
residents moving to the suburbs.
Waukesha County grew rapidly, but in
recent years, residents have been faced with the grim reality that the
very water beneath their feet is becoming less abundant and more
expensive to extract and treat. As wells must be drilled deeper, the
levels of such contaminants as radium has gone up. more...

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) -- A deal has been reached to clean up
pollution oozing into Lake Michigan from cement kiln dust piles on the
grounds of the Bay Harbor luxury resort, the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency said Tuesday.
CMS Energy, a partner in developing the resort in the
mid-1990s, will take interim steps to control releases of contamination
while conducting studies to figure out a long-range solution. CMS sold
its interest in Bay Harbor in 2002, but remains responsible for
environmental cleanups at the site. more...

DETROIT -- Fish enthusiasts pleaded
Monday for a reprieve for the 101-year-old Belle Isle Aquarium, arguing
that cost of operating it is a small price to pay for preserving the
educational and cultural institution.
Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's administration has decided to close the
aquarium in March to save about $500,000 toward $94 million in cuts he
has to make to balance this year's budget. more...

Work on Upper Macatawa wetlands progressing
- Editor H2ONotes [ 2/22/2005 - 08:38 ] #
Developers of the Upper Macatawa wetlands sent bulldozers and earth
movers away for the winter season, saying phase one of the wetland
restoration project, first envisioned in a 1998 brainstorming session,
is almost complete.
As work on the project ceased
for the winter, developers hope that the winter weather and recent
flooding won't damage the project too much.
"The flooding is a little
worrisome, once all the vegetation gets established then it will be a
pretty stable site," said John Scholtz, manager of the Ottawa County
Park and Recreation Department. more...

MISHAWAKA -- Where in South Bend-Mishawaka could you find more than 800,000 fish or almost-hatched fish eggs at one time?
If you know somebody who fishes, he or she may be able to give you the answer.
