Dow must clean up dioxin in Midland

A recent opinion article and a Detroit News editorial have suggested that the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) is rushing ahead with an ill-conceived cleanup plan for dioxin in the Midland area with no regard for sound science (“Regulatory agency threatens Michigan jobs with action against Dow Chemical,” June 24 and “More Study Needed to Decide Midland Dioxin Risk,” July 4)............................





Solid response from the DEQ Director to the inflammatory and uninformed commentary from the Detroit News on July 4th.
