TURNER, Mich. (June 30)—The Michigan Department of Attorney General and Department of Environmental Quality have won a preliminary injunction against a Turner-based scrap tire processor, saying his property represented a fire and mosquito risk. Michigan's 23rd Circuit Court ordered Joseph Heritier of Heritier Drainage to stop transporting tires to his business site and to treat the estimated 140,000 tires already on the property at least three times with mosquito-repellent chemicals. Heritier had little comment besides confirming the facts of the case. "They shut my business down and ordered me to spray the tires," he said. "We'd been doing that all along, but they came back and told me it was the wrong spray."
