The report documents the permitting process followed by the State of Michigan before allowing a trial destruction burn of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) at the General Motors (GM) Chevrolet Bay City plant. Volume I includes a chronology of events and a matrix depicting the interaction of federal, state, and local government agencies and GM in the permitting process. The matrix presents a list of who requested and who responded to each need for additional information. An analysis of the significance of interactions, including interagency communications, private sector/public communication, and the flow and quality of information developed is provided. Finally, recommendations that are based on this permit application process and that might facilitate subsequent applications for burns of hazardous materials are made.
