EMR completes field work for the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, Lake Superior Barrels Project
EMR is currently performing a unique and ground-breaking environmental investigation on behalf of the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, to assess the potential impacts to tribal lifeways associated with historic military dumping in Lake Superior. The goal of this investigation is to determine if over 1,000 barrels and possibly 400 tons of crates deposited by the US Army into Lake Superior posed a threat to human health and/or the aquatic ecosystem. This ongoing project is taking place in several steps, spanning multiple years, and beginning in 2004 with the identification of the Lake Superior Barrel dumpsite as an area of potential human health and environmental concern. A total of 25 barrels were recovered during the barrel recovery fieldwork between July 30, 2012 and August 13, 2012. Two types of contents were discovered within the barrels: a composite material of incinerated metals and munitions parts. All of the analytical testing has been completed and analysis is ongoing.
