The Downriver News Herald's Sunday edition contained a story about one of
the worst leaking dump sites in the Great Lakes region.  The former
Riverview disposal site is discharging mercury, dioxins and PCBs, among
other things, into the Detroit River.  The company and DEQ have known about
this for over 2 1/2 years and DEQ demanded a plan to halt the leaking in the
summer of 1999. To date, no plan, and the leaking continues.  Citizens in
the community are increasingly angry about the delay.  The disposal site is
adjacent to a public boat launch.
