E-M:/ Learning Opportunity for MSU Nat Res/Res Dev Students

Enviro-Mich message from "Alex J. Sagady & Associates" <ajs@sagady.com>

This is intended for MSU students, Lansing area high school 
students, Central Michigan Group of Sierra Club and others
in the Lansing area.....

Wolverine Pipeline has submitted an application for a wetlands permit
to the Meridian Township Planning and Development for a 
repair and maintenance project for an existing petroleum products
pipeline that crosses Okemos Road just north of Central Park Place

The area in question involves high quality wetlands
east of Okemos Road directly adjacent to Nancy Moore
and Central Parks in the Okemos-Meridian Township area.

A group of MSU students studying natural resources, resource development, 
environmental protection and environmental engineering could probably 
learn a great deal about wetlands protection and effects mitigation by 
learning about this project.   Of particular concern is how Wolverine Pipeline 
intends to mitigate the negative influences that such repair and construction 
activity will have on the wetlands that are in the pipeline corridor.

The application has been submitted to the Meridian Township Community 
Planning and Development Department, 5151 Marsh Road, Okemos, MI 48864
(517 853 4508

Tracking this permit, doing file reviews, seeking public involvement and 
participating in public comments would be a valuable learning experience and
could help protect some important area wetlands.
