Lake Michigan Carferry to stop dumping coal ash in lake

Joann Mead - April 4, 2015

The Lake Michigan Carferry, SS Badger, will install a new conveyor system this spring to transport ash from the boiler to retension units on the cardeck of the ferry.  This will put the Badger in compliance with the EPA mandate to stop discharging coal ash into the lake before sailing season this year. The Badger is the last coal-fired steamship operating in the U.S.  See article here.
