U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 5 will
host a media briefing and photo opportunity to mark the
cleanup of the Cannelton Industries, Inc., Superfund site,
Sault Ste. Marie, MI. The briefing will be June 27 at 2

community meeting will follow at 5:30 p.m.; media are
specifically invited at 2 p.m. for their convenience.)
Representatives from EPA, state, and local governments, and
Phelps Dodge­which paid for the $5 million cleanup­will

The Cannelton Industries site, totaling about 75 acres, is
near the Canadian border on the shore of the St. Marys
River, about a mile upstream of the Soo Locks and 1.5 miles
west of downtown Sault Ste. Marie. The Northwestern
Leather Co. operated a tannery on the property from 1900 to
1958. Wastes from the tannery’s operations were identified
in five separate areas, requiring extensive cleanup.
