Date Posted: July 25, 2001

The waters of Saginaw Bay on Lake Huron are cleaner today thanks to completion of a major dredging project that removed contaminated sediment from the lower Saginaw River. Officials from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality announced the successful removal of approximately 345,000 cubic yards of sediments from the river and bay that were contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs.
