The state Department of Environmental Protection scheduled a public hearing on the 44.6-year expansion plan from 6 to 9:30 p.m. Monday, July 18, at Mid Valley High School in Throop.
“We are happy to keep filling up auditoriums to make our position clear, but it hasn’t changed since the beginning,” said Pat Clark, one of the leaders of anti-expansion Friends of Lackawanna. “This expansion was absurd the moment it was proposed. It was senseless at the time of the past two meetings. And it remains preposterous now.”
