MDNR AGREES; NO HEALTH RISK FROM LEAD TO HARBORTOWN RESIDENTS

 MDNR AGREES; NO HEALTH RISK FROM LEAD TO HARBORTOWN RESIDENTS
 DETROIT, Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Lead levels in the soil at Harbortown pose neither a short-term nor long-term health risk even to children, the most sensitive residents, according to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR). The MDNR today approved tests results that found predicted blood lead levels for residents well below accepted federal limits.
 "We are pleased the MDNR agrees with the independent consultants," said Lawrence Marantette, president of Harbortown. "This approval should help restore the good name of Harbortown as a safe place to live, work and play."
 In response to news articles in August 1991, Harbortown undertook extensive testing of the surface soil. The nationally recognized environmental consulting firm of Dames & Moore took more than 600 soil samples, and the results were submitted to the MDNR in December 1991; today's approval from the MDNR was in response to that filing.
 Ongoing subsurface testing will provide even greater information about the environmental impact of soils at Harbortown, and upon completion by Dames & Moore, will be submitted to the MDNR for approval.
 Harbortown, jointly owned by ANR Development Corporation and MichCon Development Corporation, is a waterfront community featuring condominiums, apartments, a retail center and a marina.
