Does Lt. Gov. Cherry have some type of environmental degree?
DEQ is quite capable of handling this on their own. Last time Cherry stepped in concerning Dow's dioxin contamination, it only accomplished a lot more delay and shut the public out of any voice on the matter. These rivers and lakes belong to all of us, not the politicians.
We have the highest levels of Dow dioxin ever recorded in this country in the Saginaw River. The dredging needs to go into a licensed hazardous waste landfill, not an open pit on the floodplain next to the river. To think it might not even have a water discharge permit should be a crime. Are local officials purposely trying to destroy Lake Huron for 100 jobs? It seems that way.
Note to Cherry; Let the DEQ do their job for a change.
