EPA extends public comment period on Beeland Group's proposed disposal well
 
CHICAGO (June 29, 2007) -- U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5 has set a new deadline of July 27, 2007, for written comments from the public on a proposed permit for an underground injection well in Antrim County, Mich. 

The Beeland Group LLC has applied to EPA and MDEQ for permits to build a deep injection well to dispose of treated, contaminated groundwater from the cleanup of a cement kiln site in Bay Harbor, Mich.   EPA and MDEQ held a public meeting and hearing on the proposed permits on June 13 at the Alba Public School Gymnasium.  

If approved, the permit would only allow the disposal of non-hazardous, liquid waste. The company proposed to send the wastewater deep underground, more than 1,000 feet below the closest source of drinking water.  The well would be located a quarter mile west of the intersection of Alba Highway/County Road 42 and Patterson Road.

Written comments can be mailed, faxed or emailed to:  EPA Region 5, UIC Branch, Attn. William Bates, 77 W. Jackson Blvd. (WU-16J), Chicago, IL 60604-3590.  They may be faxed to 312-886-4235 or e-mailed to bates.william@epa.gov

A fact sheet about the proposed permit is available at http://www.epa.gov/region5/water/uicpub.htm
