Allow NO chemicals on Tawas Lake Rice
I understand that the T.L.I.A. has now applied for a permit to remove some of the rice on Tawas Lake. I am a Sportsmen or Sportswomen, that BELIEVES that this to be a action that is NOT best for the wildlife ,fish ,or sportsmen in the area and of Michigan. I am taking the time to petition you and let you know know I believe this is environmentally unsound and is detrimental and the wrong process to do to what your fellow researchers know to be a deep water coastal marsh.
I am petitioning you to take action to stop all of these actions in consideration at this time and protect one of the last marshes in the northeastern Michigan area that is total necessity to protect to sustain all of the wildlife and fish spices in the area.
WE are of the understanding that it is up to the D.E.Q. (you) to do what is best for the lakes environment and you have responsibility to the people of the City of East Tawas ,Baldwin Township, Tawas Township and All of the property owners and public using this body of water had ought to be considered when using chemicals where they become mobile by winds and currents of the marsh and river.
I also believe as a petition signer that the acts of the local aboriginals as an alternative plan for aquatic weed control offered by them is best for the Marsh and all wildlife and fish.
