What Can You Do?
  First and foremost, the Committee for a Clean Environment does not oppose dredging. We are strictly against the present proposed method and location.

The Committee for a Clean Environment was formed through concerned citizens of the Calumet Region. Together, we work to put an end to the injustice that is forcefully being thrust upon the community.  As a predominately minority area, we felt that someone has to stand up against such prejudice. Hopefully, with the cooperation of the community we can successfully find a non-threatening solution to the problem.






We believe that:

1) a clean environment is a human right;

2) environmental pollution can be reversed;

3) dialogue and concentrated efforts between citizens, government and industry will bring about a just solution.
