10/23/1995 DEQ Public Meeting on Gelman 1995 dioxane cleanup plan

DEQ Public Meeting, October 23, 1995, Scio Township Hall, explaining Gelman's 1,4-dioxane groundwater cleanup plan... an acceptable cleanup plan at the time... before Pall Corporation took over Gelman Sciences and before Danaher took over Pall. The 1995 plan worked out over several months by community stakeholders and Gelman Sciences President and COO Kim Davis when he was in charge of the cleanup from spring 1995 to spring 1996. But the acceptable plan was withdrawn when Chuck Gelman took back control of the cleanup and Pall Corporation took over Gelman Sciences.
