Operations Resume At 2 Hazardous Waste Injection Wells In Romulus

ROMULUS (WWJ) – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has approved a permit for a new company to resume operations at two hazardous waste injection wells in Romulus.

Environmental Geo-Technologies won approval for the permits, however they’ll have to follow stricter conditions such as more security and testing.

The wells were constructed in 2002 and operated by Environmental Disposal Systems … but they closed in 2007 because of poor record keeping, inexperienced and ill-trained operators, and failure to perform emergency tests.
