October 25, 2022 - At approximately 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October, 25, Midland County Emergency Management was notified that a release of Dowtherm A (biphenyl) had been reported at Dow, located on S. Saginaw Road in the City of Midland.

Upon notification of appropriate agencies, the Midland Fire Department responded to the site of the release and, in coordination with on-site and field staff from Dow, investigated the event and determined that the release had been contained within the fence line. No additional actions were necessary.

While biphenyl has a low-odor threshold and can be detected by smell, no community health impacts are expected as a result of this release.
