The enclosed letter details how the S.E. DEP has been supportive of Waste Managementís profits, at the publicís expense, both physically and financially. This letter to the director of the S.E. Regional DEP office shows why the health of tens of thousands of Greater Pottstown Area residents, especially their children, have continued to be further jeopardized by air pollution permits issued to the Pottstown Landfill that were in violation of the Clean Air Act.
S.E. DEP has shown an absolute disregard for human health, repeatedly ignoring evidence of harm around the Pottstown Landfill. Waste Management has circumvented health based standards of the Clean Air Act in this severe non-attainment area. DEP facilitated these violations.
This letter identifies DEPís failure to prevent repeated Pottstown Landfill Clean Air Act violations. Time after time, DEP has failed in its duty to enforce the Clean Air Act to protect public health, concerning air pollution permits issued to Waste Management for the Pottstown Landfill. Unnecessary suffering for the profits of Waste Management must be stopped now.
Without your immediate intervention, this pattern of abuse is likely to continue with the three pending Pottstown Landfill air pollution permits now being reviewed by S.E. DEP. Without your help, more residents around the Pottstown Landfill will get sick and some may even die needlessly, including children.
We ask you to do whatever you can to support ACEís requests.
