EPA Meeting - re: Dow, MDEQ and Dioxin

EPA hands Dow Chemical $1.8 million bill for staff time spent on dioxin issue

Oh yeah, i have comments about this... but more important, i need to share this info from Cheryl Howe, MDEQ. Received it a few days ago but have been busy.

The U.S. EPA and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality are hosting a meeting at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 15, 2009, at Saginaw Valley State University, Seminar Rooms, Curtiss Hall, 7400 Bay Road, Saginaw. This is an opportunity for people to learn more about what is being done about dioxin and other contamination in the Tittabawassee and Saginaw Rivers and Saginaw Bay watershed. For more information, see the Fact Sheet located at:

The next Midland/Saginaw/Bay City (Tri-Cities) Dioxin Community Meeting (that would normally have been scheduled to be held in early February) is being deferred to a later date. Materials related to Dow's off-site corrective action activities are available at the following locations:,1607,7-135-3312_4118_4240-53424--,00.html

Please share this notice with others who might be interested in attending this meeting or forward their e-mail addresses to me for inclusion on the distribution list. If you should have any questions, please contact me.
