Make Your Comments on the Wolverine Cleanup Community Involvement Plan

Wondering what’s being done about the contamination at the former Wolverine World Wide sites in Rockford and Belmont? 

The US EPA recently opened a public comment session on a community involvement plan for the cleanup of those sites. Until October 19, you can submit comments on the plan, which outlines how the EPA will involve and inform the public throughout the cleanup. 

Public comments are a great way to ensure the community involvement plan fits your community’s needs. Comments can be submitted to russell.diane@epa.gov until October 19.

The draft plan can be viewed at: https://semspub.epa.gov/work/05/949618.pdf

EPA Website Documents for Wolverine World Wide

The EPA’s website includes a page dedicated to Wolverine World Wide’s Rockford Tannery and the House Street Disposal Area sites. The page includes a summary of events and contacts between the EPA and WWW representatives and Michigan’s Department of Environment, Great Lakes & Energy (EGLE). It also provides an archive of documents transmitted between these entities regarding the affected sites.

While the Wolverine CAG’s website is still under development, we wanted its visitors to have direct access to the information now provided at the EPA website. This can be found at: https://www.epa.gov/mi/wolverine-world-wide-tannery.
