LEELANAU COUNTY: HOW GREEN, CLEAN AND SAFE?

The third set of coverage in our series takes into account how most human waste is handled in Leelanau County — in private septic systems and holding tanks.

The series, titled “Leelanau County. How green, clean and safe?,” has already looked at the disposal of solid waste and the safety of county drinking water. Next week we’ll discuss municipal sewer systems, which have constituted a controversial subject in Leelanau.

Staff writers Patti Brant Burgess, Eric Carlson, Amy Hubbell and Alan Campbell are providing coverage.
