Lakeshore Environmental Hired to Assist in Blueberry Wastewater Discharge Permitting

Coming under scrutiny recently by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Lakeshore Environmental, Inc. (LEI) was on the forefront of assisting Michigan’s blueberry growers and packers in obtaining groundwater discharge permits.

These facilities usually produce a limited volume of low strength wastewater over a short two-month packing season making permitting relatively easy with minimal sampling requirements.  The consensus among recent permittees was to get permitted before the state acted negatively upon the industry, a position LEI endorses.
