ESCANABA - Efforts to clean up the Escanaba River, including removal of the former U.S. 2 bridge in Wells, is continuing, according to Delta County Commissioner David Rivard.

Rivard, who also serves on the newly-developed Delta County Brownfield Authority, met Aug. 5 with Congressman Bart Stupak D-Menominee, concerning federal funding for the project. Their discussion centered on whether the river would qualify for brownfield remediation, and if federal funds could be made available for the clean-up project.

"We are currently gathering the necessary information to present to Congressman Stupak. I recently met with Wells Township Supervisor Bill Farley for information he may have to aid in obtaining federal funding," said Rivard.
