Conservation Alert: Threat to Michigan’s Holy Waters

December 5, 2013 By: Erin Block

Over two thousand acres of state-owned land in the Au Sable “Holy Waters” corridor is in danger from groundwater withdrawals operated by the fracking company EnCana. Anglers of the Au Sable along with a coalition of other like-minded groups are fighting to get the Michigan Department of Natural Resources to cancel new oil and gas leases on that land. With a final decision on finalizing the leases on December 12, please submit comments and concerns now. Find more information here about how to contact the DNR and help save the “Holy Waters.”
