LONE TREE COUNCIL SPONSORS PUBLIC PRESENTATION

"VIABLE SOULUTIONS FOR OUR RIVERS"

The second event in our Community Speakers Series "DIOXIN IN THE SAGINAW BAY WATERSHED" Lone Tree Council is delighted to host a public presentation by Mr. James Hahnenberg, Project Manager for the Fox River and Green Bay PCB cleanup.

Mr. Hahnenberg holds an MS in Geology from Michigan State University and for the past 16years has been a Geologist/Remedial Project manager for the US Environmental Protection Agency Superfund division. A mid Michigan resident, Mr. Hahnenberg previously worked on sediment projects for 12 years including the Manistique River-Harbor and Kalamazoo sites.

An expert on river restoration and toxic cleanup, Mr. Hahnenberg will discuss the restoration of the Fox River in Wisconsin and what it takes to make rivers healthy and viable.

"It is imperative that policy makers, elected officials, community leaders and citizens begin to visualize a clean restored Tittabawassee and Saginaw River. Dare to imagine rivers teeming with edible fish, supporting recreational activities and providing economic development because of healthy waters", said Michelle Hurd Riddick of the Lone Tree Council.

This presentation is open to the public free of charge
