In today's article, Friends of Lackawanna core member Pat Clark states, "the fact that no health studies are required by DEP regulations when considering a landfill expansion is an assault on common sense and an insult to those that bear the risk of having one within their community."
Amazingly, neither health studies nor ongoing monitoring of areas surrounding a landfill are required by DEP when considering a Landfill Expansion. We think that is dangerously unwise policy so we asked for one and it is underway. At some point, the decision makers will realize that this entire process if fatally flawed.
