Sportsmen seek watershed protection
Kathie Marchlewski , Midland Daily News

    Michigan’s most expansive watershed is in trouble, and hundreds of Saginaw Valley sportsmen are making a plea to Gov. Jennifer Granholm to help.
    They are teaming up with Bay City-based Lone Tree Council and asking the state to get tough – to prevent sewage overflows, to clean up dioxin and to protect wetlands in the Saginaw River and Bay.
The goal is to collect 700 signatures and deliver them to the governor before spring thaw, when sewage begins to flow and flooding sends dioxin-contaminated sediment downriver, onto residential properties and into the bay.
