Midland dioxin results lead to no surprises

MIDLAND – The state and Dow Chemical Co. say the results of recent testing for dioxin pollution in soils in the city, which are scheduled to be released next month, came in about as expected.
Some levels may be higher than the state’s action level of 90 parts per trillion, but none of the about 400 samples showed more than 1,000 parts per trillion, Dow’s Michigan Dioxin Initiative Director Greg Cochran told the Midland Daily News.
DEQ officials said the soil sample results will likely be posted on the DEQ Web site, www.michigan.gov/deqdioxin.
