What's in the Pine River?

Plaguing the surrounding communities for over 50 years, the Pine River in many areas of Central Michigan has absorbed decades worth of pollution from companies like Velsicol– even though the river is a main source of water for its residents. While the EPA has stifled the effects of current contamination, the risk of becoming desensitized to the issue in it's entirety still poses an imminent threat to the area.
