EPA terminates negotiations with Dow Chemical on river cleanups
 
(Chicago, Ill. – Jan. 4, 2008) U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 5 today stopped its negotiations with Dow Chemical aimed at a settlement to conduct a study and interim cleanup actions for dioxin contamination in the Tittabawassee River system.
 
“EPA does not believe that the deal Dow is offering goes far enough,” said Ralph Dollhopf, Associate Director for the Superfund Division of EPA’s Regional Office in Chicago. “Key issues that are paramount for protecting human health and the environment remain unresolved. EPA simply will not accept any deal that is not comprehensive.” Read full press release here
