The report presents the results of EPA's study of dioxins and other toxic pollutants at the Dow Chemical-Midland Plant. The report also presents summaries of prior EPA and Michigan Department of Natural Resources studies at the Dow Chemical-Midland Plant conducted during the period 1978 to 1985, including studies of Tittabawassee River native fish and sediments. The major findings of the report include: (1) confirmation of the discharge of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (2378-TCDD or dioxin) from Dow Chemical to the Tittabawassee River; (2) bioaccumulation of 2378-TCDD in caged fish and native fish; (3) the estimated annual discharge loading of 2378-TCDD from Dow Chemical to the Tittabawassee River is 0.00012 kg (0.00026 lbs). Current discharge levels have consistently been less than 10 parts per quadrillion (ppq), the interim discharge limit established by the Michigan Water Resources Commission and approved by EPA.
