Description

This series focuses on the EPA's promise to the public that it would force refineries to clean up their acts with the Petroleum Refinery Initiative. The EPA also required these companies, which consisted of 48 corporations in 24 states, to meet specific deadlines set by the courts in order to clear pollutants in the air. The Star-Telegram uncovered that the EPA allowed at least 17 of these companies to quietly miss deadlines "prolonging the exposure of hundreds of thousands of people to dangerous pollutants."
