Citizens, advocates, and all those interested  in reducing mercury pollution in St. Louis River so that fish are safe for human consumption are invited to attend this public forum. The program will include a Science & History Panel, which will provide key information on the problem of mercury in the St. Louis River; a Policy Panel, with representatives for the US Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Natural Resources, Fond du Lac, and Minnesota Pollution Control Agency; and a Peoples’ Congress, which will involve the audience to identify priorities in cleaning up the St. Louis River.
