TITLE: Compliance Assistance to Ford Motor Company on Clean-up of Plant 

ACTION SUMMARY: On February 3, 1999, the Air Enforcement and 
Compliance Assurance Branch responded to a call
from a representative at the Ford Rouge Plant, Dearborn, Michigan. A 
boiler exploded at the plant which resulted in asbestos
debris being scattered everywhere in the area. USEPA advised 
the Ford Rouge Plant of the proper procedures according to
the National Emission Standards of Hazardous Air Pollutants 
for the clean-up and disposal of the asbestos-containing waste
material. USEPA has also requested Wayne County Air Pollution 
Control Division inspect the facility while the clean-up is
occurring. The plant is located in an environmental justice community. 
The Community Involvement Coordinator, Office of
Public Affairs, has been notified of USEPA compliance assistance efforts 
regarding the clean-up and disposal process in case
any community concerns are expressed.
