Appeal Filed Against the DNREC-Approved Remediation Plan for Allen Harim Plant near Millsboro

Jan 18, 2014 -- 5:50am

An appeal has been filed against the Allen Harim poultry processing plant in Millsboro by two organizations – Protecting our Indian River and the Inland Bays Foundation.  They are challenging the December 24th Order of the Secretary of the DNREC which approves a proposed remedial action plan at the site of the former Vlasic Pickle plant.  The appeal claims that DNREC’s plan is flawed in several key elements – including failure to characterize adequately the hazardous substances on or emanating from the site, failure to evaluate properly the risks of those substances and failure to impose a remedy that reduces and/or eliminates the impacts and risks of the hazardous substances on or emanating from the site.
