Mining in Michigan

"The EGLE Oil, Gas, and Minerals Division (OGMD) regulates several mining industries in Michigan, including metallic mining, native copper mining, sand dune mining, and coal mining. There are also several other important mineral commodities such as gypsum, dimension stone, limestone, and aggregate (gravel pits) that are mined in Michigan but are not regulated by the OGMD. These industries, although not requiring a mining permit from the OGMD, may be subject to federal, state, or local air, water, or land use permits."

Water Testing

DEQ Request For Water Analysis Form's info page about water testing


I like the idea of working with the state site [DEQ] because the statistics are automatically entered into their database.

As to what should be tested is a long list:

Only if a well is “shallow” should it be necessary to address coliform bacteria or Ecoli bacteria.

Perhaps, many requestors would choose to shorten the list based on their personal concerns.
