DEP Takes Leachate Samples

We are glad to know that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is also involved in this investigation. We are concerned about "closed door" meetings between the DEP and KSL. That does not have the appearance of being open and transparent to the public.

DEP officials will meet with Keystone landfill staff behind closed doors at its Wilkes-Barre regional office this morning, Ms. Connolly said. She was not sure whether the EPA and Scranton Sewer Authority will attend. Efforts to reach sewer authority Director Eugene Barrett were unsuccessful Wednesday.
