Leelanau County: How green, clean and safe?

This week we conclude our series on environmental issues in Leelanau County with a look at municipal sewer systems. The overriding messages are that newer systems have been controversial, but overall our municipal treatment systems are working as designed. In past weeks we’ve covered our drinking water, solid waste and recycling, and private septic systems. Coverage has been provided by staff writers Patti Brandt Burgess, Eric Carlson, Amy Hubbell and this week Alan Campbell. The series title is, “Leelanau County: How green, clean and safe?”
