"We support the right to a clean and healthful environment for all people"
Thanks so much to the residents of "Protecting Our Indian River" for inviting our chapter to come down to meet with them regarding the proposed Chicken slaughter and processing plant on the former Vlasic site directly across from their neighborhood. A special thanks to Dotty, Ken and Joanne for showing Stephanie around the neighborhood, the beautiful Indian River in their backyards and the brownfield next door.
On Behalf of the Sierra Club, Delaware Chapter, the American Civil Liberties Union filed a petition with Attorney General Beau Biden in June asking for a review of the DNREC hearing for the Delaware City Refinery's Title V permit renewal.
The Delaware Chapter of the Sierra Club submitted the public hearing request for PBF Energy’s Delaware City Refinery Title V permit, which was held on June 4, 2013 at the Delaware City Fire Hall. The Title V permit is a federal air pollution permit required by the Clean Air Act. It is only issued once every 5 years, and it includes limits for sources of hazardous air pollution.
