The information received through this voluntary submittal process will be scrutinized for innovative ideas and technological solutions that are safe for the environment and public health and can be deployed along the Kalamazoo River to help with cleanup. The information submitted will be forwarded to the appropriate reviewing official who will contact submitters, if necessary.

Suggestions are sought in the following areas: surface water containment and cleanup, air monitoring and detection, landfall cleanup, wildlife protection and cleanup and other management activities such as data collection and management.
