E-M:/ Surprise Garbage Inspections at Border

Enviro-Mich message from "Jeff Surfus" <jeffsurfus@mediaone.net>

According to the Toronto Star, the Criminal Investigations Office of DEQ
conducted a surprise inspection of Canadian garbage trucks crossing the
Bluewater Bridge into Michigan on Friday, 9/7.  According to the report,
47 trucks crossing the bridge on Friday morning were scanned with a
radiation detector.  No trucks were found to contain radioactive wastes.
DEQ apparently will be conducting more of these inspections both at the
Bluewater and Ambassador Bridges.

(Note that in a period of 2 hours and 45 minutes, 47 Canadian garbage
trucks came over the border at one bridge!!!!)
