LANSING—State Sens. Phil Pavlov, R-St. Clair Township, and Mike Green, R-Mayville, are inviting Thumb residents in the 25th and 31st Senate Districts to a public town hall on Tuesday, Aug. 26 in Port Sanilac to discuss legislative and other efforts to protect Lake Huron from a Canadian nuclear waste dump.

Sen. Phil Pavlov, R-St. Clair Township;
Sen. Mike Green, R-Mayville; and
Anyone interested in the topic.

A public town hall meeting to inform residents about a Canadian nuclear waste dump proposal and plans by Michigan lawmakers to stop it.

Canadian officials propose to bury 7 million cubic feet of radioactive waste less than a mile from the shore of Lake Huron, directly across the lake from residents of Huron, Sanilac and St. Clair counties.

Green and Pavlov are leading an effort in Lansing to halt construction of the dump. Their legislation has passed the Michigan Senate unanimously and awaits action in the House of Representatives. Numerous Thumb communities have recently passed resolutions in support of the measures, including Paris and Sebewaing townships in Huron County.

Tuesday, Aug. 26
6:30 to 8 p.m.
