The Saginaw-Tittabawassee Rivers Contamination Community Advisory Group is composed of a broad cross-section of representatives from Bay, Midland and Saginaw counties. It serves as the focal point for the exchange of information between residents and EPA, the state regulatory agencies, potentially responsible party and other federal agencies involved in site cleanup.

Because of continued high water in Lake Huron and the Saginaw and Tittabawassee River’s there were project delays in 2021. Water levels have gone back to near normals. In 2023 many  projects will resume.
