     The year 2000 TRI report of a surface water discharge of 473 pounds of 
mercury from Lansing Board of Water and Light Eckert/Moores Park facility 
is in error.  Recent analysis shows a non-detect for mercury at 0.20 ug/L 
not only at the influent to all facilities, but also at every outfall for 
every facility; a zero pound discharge.

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.
