The State of Michigan has contracted with US Ecology to dispose of PFAS, and EGLE is planning to issue a permit to allow the company to expand to a 660,000 gallon tank capacity. Last Wednesday, US Ecology informed community members that PFAS is being stored at their Detroit North facility on Georgia Street in Detroit near Hamtramck.
