Great news City of Warren residents.
The City of Warren IPP inspectors checked out all of our drains in the city, that could possibly be contaminated with green goo on 696, and the result is NO contamination!
Warren’s Industrial Pre-Treatment Program inspectors headed by Ted Landway tested all storm drains connected to 696 and found NO POLLUTION from the spill in Madison Heights. The City of Warren is one of the first cities to have this type of an IPP inspection program.
Warren Mayor Jim Fouts would like to emphasize that the IPP Inspectors checked all drains in Warren connected to 696 and found no contamination, and will also closely monitor the 4 businesses that use hexavalent.
This hexavalent is used in industry for the chrome plating on our cars. Many industries are starting to switch to a fake paint which gives the same appearance. The state of Michigan should mandate that hexavalent be discontinued and the use of fake paint be used as a replacement.
Warren Mayor Jim Fouts is also very impressed with the effort and expertise that Macomb County Public Works Commissioner Candice Miller has demonstrated in her effort to protect Macomb County from this highly toxic ooze in Oakland County.
In that spirit, Warren Mayor Jim Fouts would like to highly commend Warren Waste Treatment Director Bryan Clor for his effort at immediately inspecting all of the drains in the Warren area to make sure we in Warren are safe!
