For the Record

• Pat Carr and Hank Lotoszinski gave a presentation to the Clark Township Planning Commission about adopting a floodplain management ordinance at its October 29 meeting. The St. Ignace News' November 6 article, "Business Sign Limits Proposed in Clark Township Master Plan," said the pair represented the Les Cheneaux Watershed Council, but in fact they presented the information on behalf of the Les Cheneaux Watershed Project, funded by a Clean Water Act non-point source pollution prevention grant to preserve and promote water quality in the Les Cheneaux watershed.

Both Mr. Carr and Mr. Lotoszinski are employed by the Chippewa/East Mackinac Conservation District, which administers the Les Cheneaux Watershed Project grant. The Les Cheneaux Watershed Council is a volunteer partner in the project.

• In the November 6 article, "Group Wants Phosphorous in Cedarville Bay Reduced," The St. Ignace News incorrectly reported there was a wastewater spill in Cedarville Bay and that the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) inspects phosphorus levels in the bay. There was a ferric chloride hose leak, not a wastewater spill, at the wastewater treatment plant last spring that prompted the DEQ to inspect the wastewater treatment facility twice since April. The facility, not the waterways, is typically inspected two times every five years by the DEQ, according to geologist for the Upper Peninsula District of the DEQ, Randy Conroy.

The Clark Township Sewer Advisory Board contacted the downstate consulting firm C2AE for information, not the Les Cheneaux Waterways Restoration group, as reported.

• In the article "Old-fashioned Christmas Is Planned in Les Cheneaux," on page 5 in the November 6 issue, Rose Miller's phone number should read 484- 2519.
