E-M:/ Use of slag on Michigan roads

Enviro-Mich message from WMEACJENNY@aol.com

my name is Jessie Watterson and I am an intern at West Michigan Environmental 
action council.  Recently i have been recieving calls regarding the use of 
slag in the process of resurfacing roads.  the caller is anomous and states 
that the slag is a by product of of copper, zinc, and sulfides.  the caller 
claims that the govener has the slag imported from Ohio and the DNR has been 
told to leave the issue alone.   according to the caller the slag is damaging 
our water.  if anyone has any information on slag or the by products of slag 
please contact WMEAC at 616 451-3051, or post a message so that i can contact 
you about the issue.
