The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service has released its long-awaited final
document for the Natural Resources Damage Assessment, related to the
catastrophic Fox River PCB contamination in Northeast Wisconsin and Lake
Michigan.

The funds could be used for habitat restoration,  acquisition, endangered
species, stocking, spawning beds, etc.  Some funds may be set aside to
leverage matching funds from private organizations, local governments and
other sources, so we could see even larger sums coming available for
valuable work.

This is a damage compensation package, and separate from the PCB sediment
cleanup plan to be proposed early next year (though the Service's plan may
include additional sediment cleanup in order to better protect sensitive
wildlife species.)
