EPA's Jim Saric
Jim Saric, EPA Region 5, the man responsible for studying Lake Allegan and steering remediation solutions to clean up the PCBs in the soil and water, gave a presentatoin on the plan for Lake Allegan. The upshot of his presentation is that pulling out or containing the PCBs with plenty of water in the lake will be expensive but necessary. But, without plenty of water in the lake, that same work will cost so so so much more. Exponential growth of the costs of remediating our area is a motivating reason, though not the only one and not even the most important one, to save Lake Allegan. If you get around to it, email Jim and thank him for coming to speak to us and giving such a great presentation. (Bonus Fun Fact: Jim Saric is in the Fishing Hall of Fame.)
