Historical Note

Citizens to Save the Superior Shoreline was an environmental organization formed in 1969 to halt the Upper Peninsula Power Company's proposed construction of a generating plant at Little Presque Isle in Marquette, Michigan. The group also monitored and engaged in letter writing campaigns involving other environmental issues such as water pollution, shoreline erosion, beautification of Marquette's Lower Harbor area, Reserve Mining (Silver Bay/Babbitt, Minnesota) taconite pollution, Seafarer (ELF)/Project Sanguine, Upper Peninsula Power Company expansion at Presque Isle Harbor, and the Lake Superior and Ishpeming Railroad proposed coal unloading dock (also at Presque Isle Harbor). The organization was also a member of the Save Lake Superior Association out of Duluth, Minnesota.
