THE SETTLEMENT:

BAY CITY - Bay City got sued, and for its trouble will get two new boat
launches.
The boat launches, planned for Belinda Street and Cass Avenue, will be 
constructed with money out of a $28.2 million settlement of a natural 
resources damages lawsuit brought by the then-Michigan Department of 
Natural Resources in 1994 over polychlorinated biphenyl contamination of 
the Saginaw River and bay.

SAGINAW - The Saginaw River muck contaminated with PCBs will go to the
"confined disposal facility," an island where crews have dumped silt dredged
from navigational channels since the 1970s - and where federal researchers
have documented birds with crossed bills and other deformities from PCB
poisoning.

 SAGIAW - The future of an 82-acre nature refuge largely unused by city
residents became more secure Monday when the city leased it to the federal
government, at no cost, as part of a $28.22 million legal settlement.

LAND:
ANN ARBOR - A community coalition that helped defeat Washtenaw County's land 
preservation initiative in a bitterly contested election Nov. 3 is 
offering an "olive branch," inviting friends and foes alike to a new 
land reform endeavor.

BAY CITY - Bangor Township officials were surprised to hear that Bay
Aggregates 
Inc. may move to the township. But, they say, there's little they can do to
stop it even if they wanted to.

POLLUTION:
LANSING - Perhaps the repair of hazardous waste-handling equipment 
should not be added to the legion of uses people have found for duct 
tape.
