EPA TO HOLD DETROIT COKE PUBLIC MEETING JAN. 8

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 5 will hold a public meeting to
discuss Detroit Coke Corporation's application for renewal of its permits to operate
underground injection wells. The meeting will be held Thursday, January 8, 7 to 9
p.m., South Rademacher Recreation Center, 6501 South St., Detroit.

Detroit Coke is at the junction of Detroit and Rouge Rivers in Southeast Detroit, next
to the Zug Island industrial complex. The company submitted an application to EPA
for renewal of its two underground injection control permits. The permits would allow
disposal of potentially hazardous contaminated waters and commercial disposal of
liquid nonhazardous waste into existing deep-injection wells. Disposal of
contaminated water may occur as  part of the cleanup at the site.
Detroit Coke is doing the cleanup as required by Federal laws. As part of the
corrective action, the company must submit and have an approved plan for the site
cleanup.

Information about the proposed permits and cleanup can be reviewed at City of
Detroit Mini-City Halls at 7744 West Vernor Hwy. and 2569 South Schaeffer Hwy.;
and Del Ray Citizens District Council, 7914 West Jefferson Ave.
