EPA Regional Administrator Thomas Skinner will be at a public meeting in Romulus on Thursday, Oct 4, 5-7 pm. The purpose of the meeting is to hear residents' concerns about the proposed hazardous waste deep injection well. (See details below).

Before EDS can inject hazardous waste, they will to prove to the EPA that there will be no migration of the hazardous wastes. This is not a public hearing, but it is a good opportunity for all of us concerned about this well to let the EPA Administrator know of our concerns.

United States Environmental Protection Agency Region 5, Chicago, IL will meet with the residents of Romulus, Taylor and Wayne County, Michigan regarding the EDS and Sun Pipe Line issues Thursday, October 4, 2001 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Marriott - Romulus, 30559 Flynn Road, Romulus, Michigan.

EPA Regional Administrator Thomas Skinner, along with members of his Underground Injection Control staff will meet with the area's residents to hear their concerns regarding the Underground Injection Well permitting issues for both the Sun Pipe Line Company and Environmental Disposal Systems (EDS). Administrator Skinner is vitally interested in what area residents have to say, but will not make specific recommendations or any decisions during the meeting.

Due to time constraints and scheduling, Administrator Skinner's participation is strictly limited to the times indicated above. Attendees are asked to be prompt and to sign in at the door in order to create a specific mailing list for these permit proposals.
