Crews digging up, cleaning up radioactive waste at mouth of Saginaw
Bay City Times
By Jeff Kart
They've been digging out hundreds of tons of radioactive waste and
contaminated soil from an old Dow Chemical Co. site across from the
Consumers Energy's Karn-Weadock power plant.
The slag is a byproduct of castings made at a magnesium foundry that Dow operated in Bay City from the 1940s through the 1960s. It's been buried by the Saginaw Bay for decades.
Living dangerously with Dow Chemical indeed! What else can this company do to Lake Huron? Phosphorous, dioxins, furans, radioactive waste........................
