June 20, 2008 - LANSING, MI – Alma College and Pine River Superfund Citizen Task Force received the 2008 Carter Partnership Award. This campus-community partnership was recognized June 19, 2008, at the Fox Theatre in Detroit at the annual Governor’s Service Awards.
Following a history of environmental abuse from a chemical in St. Louis, MI, the Pine River was declared a Superfund site. In 1999, after learning of the Environmental Protection Agencies’ (EPA) recommendation to proceed with a clean up of Dichloro-Diphenyl-Trichloroethane (DDT) contamination in the river, Alma College and the community collaborated to form the Pine River Superfund Citizen Task Force. This Task Force is an EPA sanctioned Community Advisory Group (CAG) which serves as a conduit between the community and the EPA to monitor the Superfund clean up and other activities involving the Pine River. The college and the community work together to ensure the exchange of ideas between the EPA, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), the local media and members of the greater community regarding information and ideas concerning the Pine River are heard by all parties. The long term goal of the group is to see a complete clean up of contamination from the plant throughout the county and see the Pine River returned to a state that can be enjoyed by young and old alike. Press Release - June 20, 2008.
