DOW-DIOXIN
(2008-07-16)
(wgvu) - Dow Chemical and the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency have agreed on a plan requiring the company to
clean up dioxin contamination in a Saginaw neighborhood.
EPA says tests in April revealed unacceptably high levels of
dioxin in an area by the Lower Tittabawassee River. Dow says the
contamination probably resulted from activity at its upstream
Midland plant dating back a century or more.
Under the agreement, Dow will clean the interiors of 11 homes
close to the river. Their yards will be excavated and back-filled
with clean soil. Unpaved surfaces of Riverside Boulevard will be
cleaned.
Work at the site is expected to begin late this month and
continue through mid-October.
