The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Pollution and the St. Louis River.

Dorland, Dianne, Judith Weir, and Anne Pilli.

The St. Louis River and the harbor it forms at Duluth have become so polluted that the river system had been declared an Area of Concern by 1992. This article describes how the pollution occurred, what the environmental status of the river is now, and how a new ecosystem approach (which includes government, industry, citizens, technical experts, and environmentalists) is hoping to improve the situation through a Remedial Action Plan.
