Mine Polluted Waters:  What are our Options?  

The Keweenaw's experience with Torch Lake Superfund Site and AOC raises questions as to how we can better understand the mechanisms and government programs we have at our disposal to clean up our watered environment and prevent future pollution.  What strategies have worked in other communities?  How can we navigate complicated programs and technical issues in order to protect human health and restore the environment.  We will examine our history of pollution, untangle the various efforts to clean it up, and introduce some new ideas for addressing the issues.
