Here’s a link to an interesting, lengthy article from Sunday’s Chicago Tribune about the nation’s worst factories on health threats to neighbors from water pollution. If nothing else, check out the graph to see who’s polluting near you.
On a related note, there is a meeting today about the new water permit U.S. Steel’s Gary Works is seeking. It’s this afternoon from 3-5pm and tonight from 6-8:30pm in the Savannah Auditorium on the campus of Indiana University Northwest (3400 Broadway, in Gary, IN). If you can’t make the meeting, public comments can be filed online through December 28, 2007.
