Ask Your Legislator to Vote NO A3116/S879 to protect the Delaware and River Bay!
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am writing to pleasure urge you to vote no on A3116 (Burzichelli)/S879 (Sweeney). The bill amends the definition of "existing major hazardous waste facility" in "Major Hazardous Waste Facilities Siting Act." The sprawling 1,500-acre Chambers Works site straddles Pennsville and Carneys Point in Salem County along the Delaware River. The DuPont treatment facility, now Chemours, processed commercial waste from other businesses for more than three decades but stopped in 2011. Now they want to go back full service with this bill. Chemours owns the plant and leases part of the plant to DuPont. They could potentially lease other parts of the facility to other companies.
