E-M:/ Plan would let sewage flow into Michigan lakes

The EPA says it could save millions of dollars, but others fear the impact on drinking water.
By February, the Environmental Protection Agency is expected to decide whether to allow "sewage blending," a practice in which cities mix untreated sewage with fully treated wastewater during storms.
Environmentalists are outraged at the EPA's sewage proposal, noting the goal of the 1970 Clean Water Act was to eliminate the discharge of sewage into waterways by 2010.
