Dioxin Contamination in the Tittabawassee River Floodplain


The following program has been designed to provide a general overview to members of the public (ages 18-65), of the issues pertaining to dioxin contamination in Saginaw and Midland counties in Michigan. This area encompasses what is known as the Tittabawassee River Floodplain. The objectives of this program are: to explain what dioxins actually are, identify how we may be exposed to dioxins, understanding how dioxins may affect our health, identify where the dioxin contaminations in this area originated from, examine findings from comprehensive studies performed by University of Michigan scientists on dioxin contamination, and review how the dioxin issue is currently being handled and what the goals are for cleanup in the future. This will be followed by a summary of the program, and a comprehensive list of additional resources on the dioxin issue in Saginaw and Midland counties.
