Appeal Filed Against DNREC In Vlasic Remodel

Posted: Updated:

MILLSBORO, Del. - An appeal has been filed against DNREC in the approved remediation plan for what would the Allen Harim facility in Millsboro. It was filed today by the organizations Protecting our Indian, a concerned group of residents, River and Inland Bays Foundation.

The appeal is a direct response to the December 24th order, approving a plan at the site of the former Vlasic pickle plant. It suggests the order violates the statutory, regulatory requirements:

· The failure to characterize adequately the hazardous substances on or emanating from the site. This includes the failures to sample in areas of known or suspected areas of contamination, consider all data about the site, and determine potential and actual offsite impacts.

· The failure to evaluate properly the risks created by the hazardous substances on or emanating from the site.  This includes the failure to consider known or suspected risks at the site, develop sufficient data to conduct an adequate risk assessment, have adequate data to support the risk assessment actually conducted, and determine risks from potential and actual offsite impacts.

· The failure to impose a remedy that reduces and/or eliminates the impacts and risks of the hazardous substances on or emanating from the site.
