Call on PA-DEP to require stronger air pollution standards for Covanta’s Chester incinerator

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is renewing the air pollution permits for one of the largest and dirtiest trash incinerators in the country, found in the City of Chester, Delaware County, PA. Sadly, instead of making sure the facility uses best-available technologies to monitor pollution and protect public health, DEP is proposing to increase pollution levels at the facility, and set no requirements to test for many of the most dangerous pollutants being released at the facility.

With only days left until the public comment period ends for the Chester incinerator’s pollution permit, write to DEP and tell them to strengthen their proposal to reduce pollution and protect public health from this facility.
