LANSING — Sen. Paul Wojno (D-Warren) and members of the Macomb legislative delegation conferenced with state officials today after hazardous waste was found seeping onto I-696 on Friday from a nearby, condemned business, and issued the following statement:
“The news that hexavalent chromium, a known carcinogen, was seeping onto I-696 on Friday is yet another wakeup call that we must take environmental threats seriously. Whether it’s chromium-6, PFAS or lead, we are facing a serious public health crisis in this country because these chemicals can leach into soil and contaminate our water supply.
“There is no room for complacency in situations like this. Our Macomb legislative delegation is working to ensure clean-up efforts are conducted properly, that Lake St. Clair is protected and those responsible are held accountable, and that the public is kept informed as additional information is provided to us.”
