These two items deserve some intense scrutiny from enviros in
Muskegon and Kalkaska....

=======
Muskegon


This is the old Lakeway Chemical site.....  In the past, the 
company operated by bulldozing sand dikes and creating
"seepage" lagoons for highly toxic wastes from the chemical
production process.   Lakeway made dichlorobenzidene,
a potent carcinogen, and other toxic materials...   The 
squib below sounds a lot like the cover it up and cap
it approach with an open bottom waste site next to 
Little Bear Creek....  I guess we haven't learned very 
much in 30 years.....

Kalkaska


WellTech Eastern is a subsidiary of Key Energy, the second largest
provider of oil field services in the United States.   WellTech also
recently obtained some kind of truck route permission from the
Michigan Public Service Commission.

Let's hope this is not going to be a regional oil field waste facility
like the one that releases hydrogen sulfide down in Louisiana
that was featured on CBS in an Ed Bradley special last December.

If memory serves me correct, there may already be a soil
burning incinerator at this site also.....

Hey Michigan Land Use Institute....do you know anything about
this....???

Remember that most oil field waste is not regulated under
federal hazardous waste laws......
