SUPERIOR ENVIRONMENTAL CORP. AWARDED REMEDIAL INVESTIGATION

 SUPERIOR ENVIRONMENTAL CORP. AWARDED REMEDIAL INVESTIGATION
 MUSKEGON, Mich., July 27 /PRNewswire/ -- On Tuesday, July 14, the City of Muskegon commissioners unanimously voted to award Superior Environmental Corp., a Muskegon-based corporation, the remedial investigation ("phase II" environmental testing project) for the proposed site of the Great Lakes Aquarium.
 Superior's Muskegon District Manager Scott Miller, P.E. commented on the bid acceptance, "Three months ago Superior relocated its corporate headquarters to the Greater Muskegon area. Our objective is to become involved with the community and to utilize our expertise to address environmental issues in the area." He added, "The wastewater treatment facility remedial investigation is a perfect match for Superior's capabilities and an excellent example of how we can contribute to the future growth of Muskegon."
 Muskegon City Commissioner Arthur G. Rudd and his partner Thomas R. Kampenga publicly proposed the aquarium project two years ago in September 1990. The property they have selected to build the aquarium is the site of the former Muskegon wastewater treatment facility along Muskegon Lake where soil contamination levels have been detected above acceptable limits through preliminary tests. The developers may not purchase or lease the property from the City of Muskegon until the site is cleaned up, which has delayed any further progress on the aquarium project for two years.
 The unanimous vote by the city commissioners authorized more extensive testing of the entire site. The commissioners accepted Superior's $73,300 bid to conduct the project which includes soil sampling from approximately 50 to 60 soil borings, well installation, and ground water sampling.
 Muskegon City Planner Rick Chapla recommended Superior's proposal to the commissioners. He said, "Superior really did put together the most superior proposal. It was the most complete, and it met every one of our criteria." Chapla continued, "I hope this will be the beginning of a long relationship. This is a nice feature to have a Muskegon County- based environmental company that is so diversified."
 After sampling and analytical procedures are completed, Superior will provide the city with a cleanup plan based on investigative results that will utilize the most appropriate cleanup technologies.
