Here is Sagady's pick of the most important public notice
to pay attention to in the May 11 "department calendar".....



JUNE 2, 1998 (PUBLIC HEARING)
JUNE 12, 1998 (PUBLIC COMMENT DEADLINE)

Clean Water Act, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality

Why does this deserve special attention????   Because all of the 
wastewater dischargers out there....both municipal and industrial,
will always be "on the make" to weaken water quality standard
rulemaking....   

Water quality activists should be looking over MDEQ's shoulder
on what is happening to these standards, the changes being 
proposed from previously adopted standards, etc.
