The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is asking for the public’s reaction to a $5.75 million Dow Dioxin cleanup plan in Saginaw County.

    About time! As I recall Dow's Midland plant was under investigation in the early 1980's, at the same time as the originaly Agent Orange lawsuit, because dioxin was detected in the river and they actually got away with explaining that the dioxin was caused by people tossing their cigarette butts upstream!
