Save Us From Future Environmental Risks (SUFFER)

The developer behind the project, Hazleton Creek Properties, LLC, requested a permit from Pennsylvania’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to undertake what is called a demonstration project, allowing them to dump an untested combination of construction and demolition waste and sludge from river-dredging throughout the region — but the project’s 2 million tons of waste was 40,000 times the amount usually allowed under demonstration project permits. The case settled in March of 2012.
