------------------------------------------------------------------------- Enviro-Mich message from "Terry Swier" -------------------------------------------------------------------------

I would like to thank everyone who was at the MDEQ Public Hearing in Big Rapids on May 16. What a fantastic job everyone did from speaking to being there to show support.

Some statistics from the Public Hearing (only my statistics):

    350-400 Attended.
    96 People Signed Up to Speak.
    25 People Left Before Their Name Was Called (It lasted until
approximately 11:45 PM).
    1 Person Passed.
    70 People Spoke to the MDEQ

Approximately 75% of the people who spoke were against or asked for more
information.  The MDEQ is accepting public comments until June 16 and MCWC is urging people to send their comments to this address:
