Groups File Appeal Against DNREC-Approved Remediation Plan

Posted:

MILLSBORO, Del.- Local groups have filed an appeal against the DNREC-approved remediation plan for Allen Harim, a poultry company, taking over the Vlasic plant in Millsboro.

Organizations Protecting our Indian River and Inland Bays Foundation filed an appeal with the Delaware Environmental Appeals Board challenging DNREC, which approved the proposed remedial action plan at the site of the town's former Vlasic pickle plant, a contaminated Brownfield's site.

The local groups say Ken Kristl, Esq. and the Widener Environmental and Natural Resources Law Clinic filed the appeal.
The Widener Clinic provides representation and legal assistance to public interest organizations and individuals on environmental matters in Delaware and other Mid-Atlantic states.

"We are seeking to reverse the order," said Cindy Wilton, a founding member of Protecting our Indian River. "The remediation plan that DNREC proposed misses the mark on so many levels that they simply need to go back to the drawing board and make solid, fair, realistic plans for reviving that site."

According to the appeal, the remedial plan was flawed. The appeal says the plan failed to characterize, evaluate, or impose a remedy that would reduce or eliminate the impacts of the hazardous substances on the site.
