PCB CLEANUP IN MANISTIQUE RIVER ALMOST COMPLETE

MANISTIQUE, Michigan, August 30, 2000 (ENS) - Dredging to remove PCB 
contaminated sediment from the Manistique River and Harbor is almost 
complete, officials from the EPA said Tuesday. A Chicago based EPA 
Superfund emergency response team conducted the $44 million project. 
Dredging operations began in 1996, resulting in the removal, to date, of 
about 130,000 cubic yards of waste. "The Manistique River and Harbor site 
represents one of the biggest PCB sediment cleanups to date in the Great 
Lakes," said regional Superfund director William Muno.  (SNIP)
