    Under an agreement announced Friday with federal, state and tribal governments, the Dow Chemical Company will settle an environmental complaint for an estimated $77 million in projects and funding that will restore fish, wildlife, and habitats injured when hazardous substances were released in past decades from Dow's manufacturing facility in Midland, Michigan. The agreement is subject to public comment and approval in federal court. "This settlement has been more than a decade in the making by a combined team of state, federal and tribal partners working together for the benefit of Michigan's environment and precious natural resources," Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel said. "I look forward to seeing these projects implemented to the benefit of the communities and ecosystems impacted by Dow's contamination."   Under the settlement, Dow will carry out or fund restoration projects identified in Midland, Bay, Saginaw, and nearby counties. These projects include fish spawning and fish passage improvements; restoration of thousands of acres of wetlands and other habitats; creation of multiple public nature areas with nature trails, fishing platforms, and one bike trail segment; protection of a green corridor along the Tittabawassee River; and expansion of boating access at the mouth of the Saginaw River. Maps of the work can be found to the right and below.
