KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- Congressman Fred Upton is well aware of the fight over the Environmental Protection Agency's plans to cap and leave the contaminated Allied Paper site in Kalamazoo. He says the city can expect him to lobby the EPA not to do that, but before anything can happen, a new administrator needs to be approved.
Upton expects the new EPA administrator to be approved by Congress within the next couple of weeks. Until that happens, he says, she's not likely to comment on the matter.
Upton says he and Senators Carl Levin and Debbie Stabenow will be on Kalamazoo's side on this issue as soon as the new administrator is approved.
