EPA Effectively Admits Legal Error

Withdrawn Permit Moots Dupont’s Appeal

Unclear How Ecological Impacts and USFWS Concerns Will Be Addressed

” The permit appeal process should not be used as hammer by Dupont to force EPA concession and it is not a permission slip for EPA to negotiate a cleanup plan Dupont will support behind closed doors.” ~~~ Bill Wolfe, 8/30/13

Keep in mind that this withdrawal occurred after months of closed door negotiations with Dupont in response to Dupont’s legal appeal of the final permit last year.
