Our View:  Compromise would be in order
 
 
  The government seems to be asking The Dow Chemical Co. if it is serious about addressing local dioxin contamination.
    At least, that seems to be at the heart of recent criticism of the work plan the company proposed, something it must do to comply with its operating license.

   The EPA says the proposed testing plan is too sparse to produce technically supportable information about the nature and extent of contamination, and that the timeline is too long. It also says the human health risk assessment as designed fails to comply with federal and state risk assessment policies.
