GRATIOT COUNTY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Crews are being forced to cut down dozens of trees and remove yards because of contaminated soil.

Velsicol Chemical and its predecessor are blamed for dumping waste decades ago in the Pine River and other places in St. Louis in Gratiot County in mid-Michigan.

The area was declared a superfund site by the federal government.

Now, crews are being forced to cut down more than 100 trees and remove the yards of more than 60 homes.

The City Manager claims the contamination is not harmful to humans, but a citizen task force is encouraging residents to look for dead robins.

Several died from poisoning last year.
