DEQ Announces Public Comment Period on the Upper Saginaw River Dredged
Materials Disposal Facility Section 401 Water Quality Certificate

The Department of Environmental Quality has announced that the draft
Section 401 Water Quality Certificate for the Upper Saginaw River
Dredged Materials Disposal Facility (DMDF) is available for public
comment.  The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers proposes to hydraulically
dredge material from the Upper Saginaw River federal navigation channel
and dispose of the materials at a proposed DMDF located in Saginaw and
Bay Counties.  The DMDF is designed to hold 3.1 million cubic yards of
material to be dredged over a minimum 20 year period.  The Certification
contains effluent limits, monitoring requirements, and other conditions
to ensure compliance with Michigan Water Quality Standards.

The public comment period began on November 18, and will end on
December 20.  A combined public meeting and formal hearing on the draft
Certificate will be held on December 6, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the
Saginaw Valley State University, Performing Arts Center.  Requests for
copies of the draft Certification, the fact sheet, or the
antidegradation demonstration should be directed to Yuronda Glasscoe,
