PR for Saginaw Area Dioxin Clean-Up

The following shows how well EPA (Region 5) handles public relations concerning a Superfund dioxin clean-up in the Saginaw-Midland, Michigan area:

The next meeting of the Saginaw-Tittabawassee Rivers Contamination Community Advisory Group will be from 6:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m., Monday, July 20 at the Tittabawassee Township Memorial Park Building, 150 Park Street, Freeland. An optional new member orientation will be held at 5:00 p.m. for new or interested CAG members.

The CAG meets to discuss issues related to the Superfund site and its cleanup. These meetings are open to the public and are mostly held on the third Monday of every other month. The group was established to represent the interests of the community and to share information and make recommendations to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on the cleanup of the rivers and bay.

  1. I could get ZERO interest from DNR, DEQ, EPA, or any other AlphabetSoup Agency, including Pure Michigan marketing to promote Canoe Kayak paddling on the Shiawassee River from Holly,MI ( Oakland County ) to Bay City, MI -

  2. Very, very few financial supporters for a clean, free flowing, Shiawassee River from Oakland County to Bay City. Most is done pure volunteer, ZERO pay.
