In Situ Burning as a Pollution Response Tactic in the Great Lakes

The United States Coast Guard is responsible for the planning and preparedness to respond to oil spills and hazardous substance incidents in the marine environment, ensuring all appropriate response tactics are considered for removal of pollutants. Coast Guard Sector Sault Ste Marie, in conjunction with the Northern Michigan Area Committee, has an ongoing effort to explore the feasibility of using In Situ (on-site) Burning as a pollution response tactic in the Straits of Mackinac and other Michigan waters.

There is no charge to attend our Ice Breaker winter speaker series, but donations are welcome. All sessions are open to the public. Coffee/tea will be available. Limited seating available though, so pre-registration is highly recommended. To register for this event, please call (231) 347-1181.
