I remember mrgybe's passionate defense of Dow. Scott Pruitt did the same. Dioxin is perhaps the most vile chemical these boys have invented.

Quote:
TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) Dow Chemical Co. has agreed to spend $77 million on environmental restoration projects to compensate for pollution by its plant in Midland, Michigan.

Federal and state officials announced a settlement with the company Friday.

The Dow plant released dioxins and other hazardous substances into rivers and their watersheds for decades after opening in 1897.

The contaminants harmed fish, invertebrates, birds and mammals. They prompted warnings about touching soil and eating wild game and fish in some areas.

Under the deal, Dow will fund fish spawning and habitat improvements; restoration of thousands of acres (hectares) of wetlands and other wildlife living spaces; and creation of public nature areas.

The settlement is separate from an ongoing Dow-funded cleanup of dioxin contamination along the Tittabawassee and Saginaw rivers and Lake Huron's Saginaw Bay.
