E-M:/ Community Information Meeting

Enviro-Mich message from "Robert Zabick" <Rzabick@co.wayne.mi.us>

The Good Neighbors United Initiative (GNUI), in cooperation with the Wayne County Department of Environment (WCDOE), and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), is hosting a Community Information Meeting regarding the draft Renewable Operating Permit (ROP), for Marathon Ashland Petroleum L.L.C., 1300 S. Fort, Detroit MI. The ROP is intended to simplify and clarify the facility's applicable requirements and will not result in any air emission changes at the source.

The meeting will be held at:
 M-Tech Center, 3601 Schaefer, Dearborn MI (north of Rotunda)
Wednesday, September 24, 2003 at 6:00 PM

This meeting is intended to explain the air permit and answer questions the community may have. It is not intended to be a Public Hearing. The MDEQ will conduct a formal Public Hearing regarding the permit, if requested during the public comment period which ends October 6, 2003. 

Representatives from Marathon Ashland will explain how a petroleum refinery operates, and staff from MDEQ will explain the components of the ROP and the allowable air emissions involved. There will be adequate time for questions and discussion.

Refreshments will be served. Come and meet your neighbors.

For more information, contact Bob Zabick, WCDOE, at (313) 224-8172
