  • March 1, 2023: New study highlights exposure risks in Ann Arbor basements from the Gelman Sciences 1,4 dioxane plume 

    The Gelman Sciences 1,4 dioxane plume continues to spread and threaten the health of groundwater in Scio Township and Ann Arbor. Recent reports indicate there is now a potential threat of exposure through wet basements. With spring and the usual basement flooding that occurs in portions of the area, it is a cause for concern. University of Michigan toxicologist and environmental professor, Dr. Rita Loch-Caruso, is a co-author of a study identifying the problems. She joined WEMU's David Fair with the latest information.  Tune in to 89.1FM WEMU to hear the shows on the air, or listen to archived shows on our Issues of the Environment page.  For questions or ideas for future show topics, please contact Mary Mathias Lapp.
