Search for missing barrel sites underway on Lake Superior this month News From 91.3 KUWS July 18, 2008A sweep is underway of 110 square miles on western Lake Superior near Duluth. The target is half century-old Department of Defense barrels. Mike Simonson reports from Superior.

The research vessel Blue Heron will be putting in long days during three expeditions scanning sectors of western Lake Superior, a strip five miles wide and 22 miles long from Lester River to Two Harbors on the lake's north shore.
