Other mercury information....

Michigan State University made no report of mercury or
mercury compound emissions from its coal fired power plant
(don't know if they are claiming SIC code non-applicability).

Lansing Board of Water and Light Eckert Moores Park
power plant in Lansing reported a whopping 473 lbs of
mercury release to surface waters in year 2000, the
state's highest by far [could it be an error??]

Wayne Disposal near Ypsilanti landfilled a whopping
12,454 lbs of combined mercury/mercury compounds, but
reported absolutely no mercury emissions.
