PCB Cleanup Website Available

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

"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
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 ,
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

   *Cleanup technologies and dredging information
