Thank you, Senator Blake, for asking DEP Secretary John Quigley questions regarding the Keystone Sanitary Landfill expansion application at the Senate Appropriations Committee hearing today! This is a great step in the right direction towards ensuring the voice of your constituents is heard!
Great things about this link:
-Senator Blake is bringing up our concerns to the DEP at the State level
-John Quigley agrees to another DEP meeting
-John Quigley says that they do take into consideration that our area has 2 landfills in close proximity to each other
-John Quigley says he is getting letters from all of you every day–you are making a difference!!
Less great things about this link:
-Senator Blake doesn’t agree with the expansion “at this scale”
-John Quigley says he thinks the current regulations are adequate
-John Quigley infers there is still a lot of time left before the decision but a year will go by fast and we are just at the tip of the iceberg learning about the current and potential harms of this landfill
