EPA SEEKS PUBLIC COMMENT ON DOW HAZARDOUS WASTE TREATMENT
VARIANCE, PUBLIC HEARING FEB. 20

CHICAGO (Feb. 14, 2002) -- U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
Region 5 will hold a public hearing on a proposed Resource
Conservation and Recovery Act hazardous waste treatment
variance for Dow Chemical Co., Midland, Mich.  The hearing will
be at 7 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 20, at the Midland Center for the
Arts lecture room, 1801 W. St. Andrews Road.

EPA, in coordination with the Michigan Department of
Environmental Quality, proposes to approve a variance to Dow's
hazardous waste treatment plan to allow for disposal of
contaminated sludge in a landfill instead of burning it.  The
sludge is being removed from treatment ponds at the plant as a
result of federal and state court orders.

EPA will accept public comments on the proposed variance until
March 4.  To review the records, visit the Grace A. Dow
Memorial Library, 1710 W. St. Andrews St., Midland. To comment
write to Greg Rudloff at EPA Region 5 (DW-8J), 77 W. Jackson
Blvd., Chicago, IL. 60604, phone (312) 886-0455 or e-mail
rudloff.gregory@epa.gov.
