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

Please refer to the Survey of Accidential and Intentional Releases of Hydrogen Sulfide at mecprotects.org.
While the Survey has not been updated, releases that place citizens in harms way continue throughout the state with DEQ response maintaining status quo.

Michigan ?

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?

Sept 13 - DEQ notes "Vreba-Hoff has allowed conditions to further deteriorate to the point the Dairy Operations now pose a grave threat to public health and the environment." (see pdf of full DEQ letter)
