DEEP INJECTION WELL MEETING MONDAY, APRIL 20

DEEP INJECTION WELL MEETING MONDAY, APRIL 20: While the City of Romulus has always voiced its strong objections to the operation of any Hazardous Waste Injection Wells in the city, the State several years ago, over those objections, granted a permit to operate the well on Citrin Dr. Our primary responsibility as elected officials is to protect the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of Romulus. Therefore, upon learning that this facility was in the process of transferring ownership to Republic Services, City officials met with the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes & Energy (EGLE) beginning in September of last year. At this meeting, the City voiced multiple safety concerns and the critical importance of holding a public hearing prior to EGLE approving the transfer of the license. We were pleased that Republic agreed to hold a public meeting, even though operations have already began on the site. Though current circumstances have caused this change in meeting format, we think it is still vitally important to give the public the opportunity to be engaged with this process. Republic has made significant safety improvements to the facility and we look forward to hearing more about their operations during this meeting today.
