**Public Hearing for Wednesday, January 8th Postponed** Marathon has a series of emission violations and failed processes at the Detroit Heavy Oil Upgrade Project (DHOUP). Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and the Attorney General have opened a public comment period from December 4, 2013 to January 8, 2014 (extended to February 19) regarding: - Permit To Install (drafted) by Marathon Petroleum to address maintenance, processes, and addressing limitations on emissions & throughput. They are seeking to expand production. - Consent Order (drafted) from the State of Michigan Attorney General regarding emissions violations fines and fees totaling $99,500. WRITTEN COMMENTS are still being accepted regarding these two drafted documents. We *highly* suggest written comments as they can be assembled to be more thorough and request specific information and actions. A PUBLIC HEARING will be held at a date yet to be determined. Today's hearing was postponed. Please find more information on the DCATS - Detroit Coalition Against Tar Sands website D-CATS.org and shared to the Facebok page. Video invitation: http://bitly.com/1cmk8Vq Eventbrite: http://bit.ly/K3jy3b - collecting information from those impacted and unifying action PDF documents collection: http://bitly.com/1cZfJWQ Storify on topic: http://storify.com/fuzzytek/marathon-petroleum-permit-and-consent-order-public CALL TO ACTION - COMMENT CONTENT As advocates working in the best interest of the public we believe restitution for the violations offers no benefit to the neighborhood which has endured illegal operation of the facilities and equipment thereon. Additionally MDEQ has not fielded calls regarding sighted emission irregularities, nor have calls into the reporting office been issued identification that the reported incidents are recorded. The public has been harmed by the operations of Marathon Petroleum. The company is now seeking to increase throughput and emissions. Our observation is the public requires oversight independent of our government offices, whom have not upheld the safety of the public in their operation. The public can and should demand a community benefits agreement & plan of operations -- meeting with the Attorney General, MDEQ, surrounding municipality representatives, and Marathon with our counsel and representatives of the neighborhood impacted. http://www.facebook.com/events/606473809401614/
