SN Editorial... Saginaw River Dredging

Dredging plans can't run aground... not related to the Tittabawassee River controversy, but definitely the message in this editorial from The Saginaw News speaks volumes. Note the following excerpt from that piece published in today's paper:
'The Saginaw River is much cleaner than it was three decades ago when it was dredged by the Corps of Engineers. Those contaminated spoils were dumped and capped on the north end of Ojibway Island in Saginaw.'
Kudos to the editor! Oh yes, I remember many picnics at Objibway Island too... and the raft races on the river. Rafters often spent as much time in the water as they did rafting!
