"Plenty of Contaminants Found At Detroit-Area Industrial Site"

"MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich. — High levels of multiple contaminants have been found in soil and groundwater at an old industrial site in suburban Detroit, state regulators said, after an inspection that was triggered by the discovery of a yellow-green substance along a major interstate.

There is no risk to drinking water intakes on Lake St. Clair, the Michigan Department of Environment said Friday.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency soon “will begin dozens of soil borings as part of an initial site characterization to help determine the extent and levels of contamination” at the former Electro-Plating Services in Madison Heights, the state said."

The Associated Press had the story December 28, 2019.
