DDT-contaminated sediments will come out of the Pine River by the end of

Superfund cleanup in downtown St. Louis will affect residents downstream 
or what it will leave behind.

MUSKEGON - Although industrial wastewater discharge stopped shortly after a 
sewer line break, an estimated 6 million to 8 million gallons per day of 
and commercial sewage continue to flow into Muskegon Lake. Also 
discharged into the lake were most of the estimated 10 million gallons 
of wastewater - mostly industrial - that were in the 11-mile-long 
stretch of sewer main at the time of the break.

HICKORY CORNERS - Keith Charters has news for anyone in Ross Township 
thinking they'll be untouched by the menace of urban sprawl.
"Someone better be concerned about it because it's coming," said 
Charters, chairman of the state Natural Resources Commission and project 
coordinator for the Traverse City Area Chamber Foundation. "You're too 
close to the urban areas of Kalamazoo and Battle Creek."

MUSKEGON - A plan to reorganize and redevelop the Muskegon Lake shoreline is 
moving ahead, but disagreements over specific land use proposals are looming.

ANN ARBOR  - In honor of Earth Week, the city of Ann Arbor joined a U.S. 
Conference of Mayors initiative to encourage recycling by having employees 
through their files and remove materials no longer needed.
