Dingell Asks EPA, MDEQ for Clarifications on Environmental Violations at Former McLouth Steel Site
TRENTON, MI – Today, Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (D-MI) pressed Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to answer questions and reassure residents after a notice of violation found increased asbestos levels following demolitions at the former McLouth Steel Site in Trenton.
“As we all know, there is a long history of environmental violations at this site spanning several decades,” wrote Dingell. “Demolition and remediation of this site in a safe and effective manner is critical for the future of this region. MDEQ and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are critical to ensuring this actually happens. People are looking for reassurances during the remediation and redevelopment phase, as well as a full understanding of the response to this violation.”You can read Dingell’s full letter here.
