SS Badger dumping coal ash in Lake Michigan - October 2011. The SS Badger dumps nearly 4 tons of coal ash in Lake Michigan each day as it operates between Ludington, Michigan and Manitiwoc, WI. http://articles.chicagotribune.com/20... for more information.

LMC claims of ash discharges being tested and found to be below EPA threshholds are false - See:
On February 24, 2012, EPA
found that five (5) independent samples of coal ash slurry discharged by the Badger were necessary to characterize the effluent entering Lake Michigan. EPA also designated the specific pollutants and sampling and analytical methods to be utilized in developing this data.

The permit application included only one sample of coal ash slurry from one sampling event conducted in 2011. For the following reasons, EPA has determined that the one sample provided by the LMC with its application was not analyzed consistent with EPA's specified procedure and is not acceptable for consideration as one of the five required samples to be used to determine the
nature of the Badger's discharge.
Kevin Peirard (EPA) letter to Robert Manglitz (LMC). June 20, 2012.
