S.S. Badger's quest to receive active opposition from high-ranking senator


Recommended Posts

I agree. I'd really hate to see the Badger shut down (for a few different reasons) but they have to clean that mess up. My information is that DTE had a proposal all in place to implement, with CNG filling stations in Ludington and Manitowac and the conversion of the ship's boilers to that fuel source. LMC dismissed that plan due to the investment required on their part. My opinion, and it's only that, is that Mr. Manglitz will continue to run the operation, as is, until he no longer is allowed and at that point will close the operation. Actions taken over the past few years indicate little interest on his part to comply with EPA mandates. Of course local legislators are all behind extending the EPA exemption for the Badger, using job creation and savings as their battle cry. The 200 jobs referenced are largely seasonal jobs. For those not familiar, below is the type of pollution we deal with. This is in addition to the tons of slurry discharged into the lake annually.
