The two-volume 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. Volume II contains the relevant documents summarized in the Volume I lists. Recommendations include: (1) identification of all groups that may play an important role in future permitting processes; (2) contacting these groups by letter or in person; (3) developing a relationship of cooperation with these groups; (4) determining the level of support for proposed action; and (5) determining the necessary course of action based on the level of support.
