Dear Commenter:

As of September 20, 2016, Savoy Energy has withdrawn its permit application for the proposed Creque 3-20 SWD well, Underground Injection Control draft permit #MI-091-2D-0004. Therefore, the draft permit is no longer under consideration by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). EPA will take no further action regarding this draft permit and will not hold a public hearing or respond further to comments collected during the comment period. Should the company propose the well again, it must submit a new application to EPA, which would undergo review and public notice.
