The iconic Michigan steamship, the SS Badger, may lose its permit to dump spent coal into Lake Michigan.

The Ludington company that owns and operates the Badger, Lake Michigan Carferry, expects to hear soon from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency about its request to continue the practice.

Hugh McDiarmid, communications director for the Michigan Environmental Council, discusses the impact of the SS Badger on the environment with Mark Bashore, host of WKAR's news program Current State.
