EPA renews technical assistance grants to pair of Michigan community

CHICAGO (Sept. 29, 2003) -- U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region
5's Superfund Division recently renewed $50,000 technical assistance
grants to the Kalamazoo River Watershed Council (Kalamazoo, Mich.) and the
Pine River Superfund Task Force (St. Louis, Mich.).

The grants may be used to pay for technical advisors, who help interpret
technical data for the organizations and act as liaisons between the
groups and EPA at Superfund sites.  The Kalamazoo group is concerned with
the Allied Paper/Kalamazoo River site.  The St. Louis organization is
concerned with the Velsicol/Pine River site.  Both sites are on EPA's
Superfund National Priorities List.

This is the fourth grant award for the Kalamazoo group, following a
$50,000 grant in May 2000, a $10,000 grant in May 2002 and a $50,000 grant
in March 2003.  The Pine River group previously received a $50,000 grant
in April 1999.

Since 1989, Region 5 has awarded technical assistance grants to 28
community organizations in the Great Lakes states, totaling more than $2
