The community meeting held this past Tuesday has been getting media attention from a number of outlets, including MLive, Fox 17 News, and WMUK radio. A coalition of community members, local business, and nonprofit organizations are concerned with the direction the US EPA is moving toward for the PCB clean up at the former Allied Paper site. You can connect with these community efforts through the Kalamazoo River Cleanup Coalition’s website and facebook page.
Another community meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 9 at 7:00 pm. The meeting is open to the public and anyone interested in getting connected with this issue is encouraged to attend. The meeting will be held at Goodwill Industries, 420 E. Alcott Street, Kalamazoo. Contact Gary Wager of the Kalamazoo River Cleanup Coalition for more information (269-382-0490 ext. 271 or firstname.lastname@example.org).
