ANN ARBOR, MI – Though the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has suspended the process to designate the Gelman dioxane plume as a Superfund site, the agency isn’t stepping out of the picture.

Michigan Department of Environmental Quality officials told a group of local officials and residents on Tuesday, Nov. 14, the EPA will be working closely with the DEQ over the next year to keep a watchful eye on the toxic plume of pollution spreading through the Ann Arbor area’s groundwater to ensure public health is protected.

Dan Hamel, the DEQ’s project manager overseeing ongoing efforts to monitor and address the plume, said the EPA has assigned Michael Berkoff, an EPA environmental scientist based in Chicago, to be its project manager, and Berkoff will be visiting from time to time.
