Red Run Drain Sediment Sampling 2009

November 9, 2014

Not sure I understand how 8 sediment samples generates
a report of 1,500 pages but it is the USACE at work.

Here is a portion of that report (File is 11 MB large) :

USACE Red Run Drain Sediment Sampling 2009


Somehow much of the testing appeared to be have been Halted around 2009
Perhaps funding dried up, personal changed positions, etc., etc.

You would think with all the hard rains, flooding events and such
that Political Officials would be itching to know what got thrown
into Lake St. Clair where everyone recreates in the water.

PCBs seems to persist
