CBF on WYPR Today at Noon

Today at noon (until 1:00) on Midday with Dan Rodericks on WYPR radio, former Baltimore Sun editorial writer Karen Hostler will be interviewing CBF Litigation Director Jon Mueller and Senior Scientist Beth McGee and at least one representative from the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) on the Sparrows Point steel mill, which has been discharging toxic chemicals into the air and water for years. Author and former Baltimore Sun reporter Mark Reutter, who has written extensively about Sparrows Point, will be on the show as well.

On Friday, May 29, 2009, CBF and Baltimore Harbor Harborkeeper notified EPA, MDE, and the current and former owners of the Sparrows Point steel plant of our intention to sue them in federal court to force a clean-up of pollution flowing from the plant site, to conduct an adequate assessment of risks to human health and the nearby ecology, and to address other violations of the law.
