Contaminated Site Interview – Little River Band of Ottawa Indians Contact for Interview Rochelle Rollenhagen Brownfield Coordinator Little River Band of Ottawa Indians Phone: 231-398-2182 Natural Resources Department Email: [email protected] 375 River Street, Manistee, MI 49660 Background The Little River Band of Ottawa Indians (LRBOI) has been federally recognized since 1994. LRBOI received an Environmental Protection Agency Brownfields Assessment and Cleanup grant for two sites, the East Lake site described here, and the Pow Wow grounds, located across the highway from the casino. A cleanup of the Pow Wow Grounds was completed in 2007, and the Little River Band received a letter of “No Further Response Action Required” from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) in October 2009. The remainder of this case study describes the East Lake site. The Tribe obtained the East Lake site, a 32 acre parcel bordering Manistee Lake, in 1998. The parcel had been historically contaminated for over one-hundred years, beginning with the R.G. Peters Salt and Lumber Company in 1880. Subsequently, Michigan Chemical Corporation operated on the property from the 1920’s to the early 1970’s, producing bromine among other compounds. In the early 1970’s, Manistee Forge, a heavy equipment manufacture, and a fiberglass production company occupied the site until the late 1990’s when the Tribe obtained the property.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
