Below is a story which appeared in the Winter 2013 edition of the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality’s (MDEQ) internal e-publication, DEBQubicle, regarding recent efforts to resolve an odor issue at Ford’s Sterling Axle facility. The article was written by Rem Pinga, Air Quality Division, Southeast Michigan District Office.
