As the 25th anniversary of the discovery of widespread dioxin releases from Dow's Midland plant approaches, and the battle continues over how to clean up some of the highest dioxin levels found in the Great Lakes system, a local legislator offers the wisdom that the EPA was wrong to terminate negotiations with Dow last week, and needs "to get serious and make something happen here
in the Saginaw Valley area."|
Maybe EPA has decided that 25 more years of largely futile talking is not going to clean up anything, and the agency will make something happen through more fruitful effort. The Great Lakes hope so.
