Owner of Revere Dock that collapsed into Detroit River last year, fined $60,000
The owner of the dock that collapsed into the Detroit River nearly a year ago has been fined 60-thousand dollars by state environmental regulators.
The collapse at Revere Dock near historic Fort Wayne went unreported to the Michigan Department of Great Lakes, Water, and Energy for weeks.
Department spokesman Nick Assendelft explains the fine.
“We did an investigation determined that there were violations of the natural resources and Environmental Protection Act. So the fines, you know, reimburse the state for the work we did to make that determination.”
The November 2019 collapse was worrisome because the site had previously been used in the production of uranium rods and its proximity to a drinking water intake pipe.
