E-M:/ Who will be in charge? Who WILL we call?


My friends in Lenawee County report major recent events at www.nocafos.org.  Included is a PDF of the remarkable Sept 13 DEQ letter indicating nobody's in charge at Vreba-Hoff and the operations now pose "a grave threat to public health and the environment.".


What I want to know is, as of Monday, with some huge portion of the DEQ staff laid off for some indeterminate time – WHO will be in charge there to deal with this grave threat to public health and the environment?  


Robert McCann – can you please advise us who we should call in case of an environmental disaster?
