A top environmental attorney representing the Bad River Band
of Chippewa in the debate over a proposed iron ore mine helped lead the
Metropolitan Milwaukee Sewerage District during a time when it pumped billions
of gallons of raw sewage into Lake Michigan. Dennis
Grzezinski, the senior staff attorney for Midwest Environmental Advocates,
has testified against the proposed mine and has worked closely with the tribe
on public relations and lobbying matters on the mine issue. For 18 years,
Grzezinski was a Commissioner for the Metropolitan Milwaukee Sewerage District
(MMSD), and for four years he was the chairman of the Commission.
During the four years that Grzezinski was chairman of the
MMSD Commission, 1991, 1992, 2003, and 2004, the MMSD pumped 17.56 billion
gallons of raw sewage into Lake Michigan, one of the two Great Lakes that
border Wisconsin. Those figures come from the MMSD’s own
data available on their website.
