Pollution clean-up deal for the Saginaw River
General Motors and the cities of Bay City and Saginaw agreed to a $28.22 million settlement on November 23 in Michigan's largest natural resources lawsuit and possibly the second-largest environmental settlement in US history.
In 1994 the state and federal governments and the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe sued GM, Bay City and Saginaw for allegedly dumping tons of polychlorinated biphenyls, PCBs, into the Saginaw River. Dredging of contaminated silt from the Saginaw River could start next summer.
