PCB Cleanup Website Available

(Green Bay, WI) - Looking for quick answers or detailed evidence on the PCB
problem in the Fox River and Green Bay? A website has been created for this
purpose by several citizen organizations, using a Technical Assistance
Grant (TAG) from the U.S. EPA.

"We spent more than a year creating this public service site, to provide
"one-stop shopping" for local residents with questions about the issue,"
stated Rebecca Katers, of Clean Water Action Council, who coordinates the
TAG project. "New information is added daily."

The other 6 groups in the TAG coalition are: the Door County Environmental
Council, the Chappee Rapids Audubon Society, (Marinette), Great Lakes
United (regional), Wisconsin's Environmental Decade (statewide), the
Northeast Wisconsin Student Environmental Network, and the Brown County
Conservation Alliance (a coalition of 16 hunting, fishing, boating and
other outdoor organizations.)

The site includes many unique reports and information not available
elsewhere, plus many links to separate government, industry , environmental
and scientific websites created by others. Topics include:

*PCB health effects on humans and wildlife - thousands of studies and
*PCB sources, chemistry, history and locations
*How you can protect yourself and your family from PCBs
*Fox River and Bay statistics, geology and history
*Cleanup technologies and dredging information
*Descriptions of the 7 PCB polluting compaies and their financial
ability to pay for the cleanup
*Government proposals to clean up the PCBs, with links to their websites
on the topic
*Political shenanigans surrounding this issue
*A current and historical archive of Fox River, Bay and PCB news media
*Links to hundreds of other websites on related topics
*Action alerts and public notices - how citizens can get more involved
