Battle Continues Over Chicken Plant In Millsboro

Posted: Updated:

MILLSBORO, Del. - The fight continues for Millsboro residents who are up in arms over an Allen Harim chicken processing plant.

According to reports, members with non-profit community groups Protecting Our Indian River and Inland Bays Foundation filed a Notice of Appeal with the Superior Court of the State of Delaware. The appeal is to reportedly overturn a June 2014 ruling that streamlines the siting of an industrial poultry operation on the allegedly polluted Brownfield site of a former Vlasic pickle plant in Sussex County.

The Notice of Appeal reportedly states that the conclusions by DNREC "are not supported (and in fact are contradicted) by substantial evidence in the record," and that the approved Brownfield remedial action plan "did not comply with requirements of the Hazardous Substance Act and the regulations issued there under." The groups are requesting that the Court reverse the Environmental Appeals Board approval and send the issue back to DNREC for development of a lawful, science-based plan.
