There were tumors on fish in the copper country, caused by mining they say. They used the angiogenesis caused by copper tailings from the copper
mines to evaluate the reason behind the cancerous growths. I fished a lot in the area and only found the tumors in a couple of places, the places
near where the sewer plants let their discharge into Portage lake. They spent a lot of money covering up small areas of the mining sands to reduce
the copper and abandoned the super fund spending because they could not get it much better as there were a lot of the tailings from mining operations
dumped into the lakes up there.
Now, the copper in the water is what fueled the cancer, but it is not what caused the cancer. I feel that some kind of chemistry in the cleaned sewer
water is what was triggering the cancer in the fish. Where the concentration was the highest, next to where the plants "considered safe" water was
let out is where the highest concentration was.
Sewer plants are not designed to neutralize all chemistry. The meds we pee out are not all removed from the wastewater, the plants are not designed
to do that. The chemicals we use in our daily use are not all detoxified. But the regulations governing the sewer discharge do not examine
everything, the parameters do not include testing for many things.
I caught around three northern pikes with big growths on them and some perch and other kinds of fish. I just quit fishing in those areas which
actually were by the sewer plants.
