US Ecology's plan to expand its toxic waste facility in Detroit

Staff Pick

US Ecology, a hazardous waste facility on Detroit's east side, wants to enlarge its operation tenfold. The facility's new license would "allow it to increase hazardous waste storage there in tanks and containers from 64,000 gallons to nearly 666,000 gallons." The facility is a half-mile from the densest urban area in Michigan: Hamtramck. It's also located less than a mile from several churches and mosques, about a quarter-mile from the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department, and less than 1,500 feet from Crockett High School. All around, we've got a bad feeling about this.
