Adjacent to the northwest shore of Ellsworth Lake is a large manufacturing facility (hereafter referred to as the IDC site) with a complex history of various business activities which have contributed to public health hazards and pollution of the lake (Table 4). A brief summary from the Michigan DNR is presented in the Appendix. The DNR has recommended legal action against IDC, however the state Attorney General has declined. The federal attorneys have not made a final determination regarding their action (personal communication DNR 1988).
