Toxic pool has PCB levels 200,000 times above safe levels

  #
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 Avenue. State and Macomb County officials are calling for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to conduct tests to find the source.

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

CADILLAC - Thirsty?

Water, water everywhere,

  #
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...

Deal reached for pollution cleanup at Bay Harbor resort

  #

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...

Group puts pressure on to save aquarium

  #

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

  #

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...

Fish Hatchery keeps busy raising and releasing steelhead and coho.

  #

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.

But most of us don't know about the Bodine State Fish Hatchery on the north bank of the St. Joseph River between Bittersweet Road and Capital Avenue.

The hatchery raises and releases 365,000 fish a year, most into the St. Joseph River.

Right now, fish to be released this spring fill giant outdoor tanks at the hatchery, and smaller fish to be released in the fall and next spring are still inside.    more...
