Asbestos Exposure in Muskegon, MI

Occupying 18 square miles and home to more than 38,000 residents, the city of Muskegon serves as the seat of Muskegon County, Michigan. Muskegon is the largest city on the eastern shores of Lake Michigan. Known for its diverse, entrepreneur-driven economy, Muskegon County is recognized as a global leader in advanced manufacturing with specialization in metal, plastics, alternative energy, and agricultural products. Among Muskegon's major employers are West Michigan Steel, Cannon Muskegon Corporation, GE Aviation, and Alcoa-Howmet Castings.

Muskegon is adjacent to two bodies of water: Lake Michigan to the west and Muskegon Lake to the north. The Muskegon River empties into Muskegon Lake at the city's northeast end. Fur pelts, pine logs, and piston rings have traveled these waters to market. The Hudson Bay Company prospered in the furs from Muskegon’s forests. The city of Chicago rebuilt itself with timber from Muskegon after the great fire of 1871. During the lumbering era, Muskegon was touted as having more millionaires than any other town in America. Tank engines manufactured in Muskegon were used in wars and began to give Muskegon a reputation as a foundry town. Since its Euro-American settlement in 1837, Muskegon has been nicknamed, “Lumber Queen of the world”, “Port City”, and “Riviera of the Midwest”.
