MIO (UPI) - Several Oscoda County
landowners testified in circuit court
yesterday in their effort to prevent the
state from burying thousands of PBB-
contaminated cattle carcasses in a
massive, clay-lined pit.
A number of state officials were ex-

Judge Allan Miller when the two-day
evidentiary hearing resumes today.
THE HEARING was ordered by the
Michigan Supreme Court, which
refused to rule on the legality of the pit
until it could be determined whether
area residents would be adversely af-
fected by state plans.
The landowners claimed that burying
the tainted farm animals in the pit
would threatena nearby watershed and
groundwater supplies.
The Oscoda County PBB Action
Committee filed suit, accusing state of-
ficials with failing to obtain the
necessary permits to construct the 2.2
acre, clay-lined pit for thousands of
farm animals contaminated when the

Assistant Attorney General Don
Kefkey told Miller that the committee
first must prove that the pit represents
a danger before any other issues can be
examined at the hearing.
