- December 12, 2018: Higher 1,4 Dioxane Levels In Ann Arbor's West Park Prompt More Testing
Amid PFAS contamination, controversial oil and gas pipelines, and lead contamination, another water safety issue in Washtenaw County sometimes drops out of the public discourse. The expanding 1,4 dioxane plume in the Ann Arbor area has again reared its head. In this week's "Issues of the Environment," WEMU's David Fair talks to Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner Evan Pratt about the steps being taken after recent testing revealed much higher levels of the chemical in the waters in Ann Arbor's West Park.
