The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is asking for the public TMs reaction to a $5.75 million Dow Dioxin cleanup plan in Saginaw County.
Throughout the month of August, the EPA is asking residents near the Tittabawassee River, Saginaw River, and Saginaw Bay to use their online submission form about the multi million dollar cleanup project.
The river has been the spotlight of much controversy after harmful chemical were found in the water, coming from the Dow Chemical Company.
The EPA has come up with several different cleanup options, but wants the community TMs involvement in the decision making process on how they TMll go forward.
EPA project manager Mary Logan tells the Associated Press that the contamination most likely happened long ago, and that Dow currently has a system that prevents further pollution.
In the meantime, we want to hear the community TMs reaction to the Dow Dioxin cleanup. What are some suggestions you have?
