DEP Reaches Proposed Consent Decree with
Company Discharging into River in Warren
DEP conducted biological surveys in 2012, which indicated that the discharge from Waste Treatment Corporation’s plant at 341 West Harmar St. in Warren was harming the river’s water quality and biological community.
Among the requirements are that Waste Treatment must install additional wastewater treatment measures, and they must be installed and meet requirements in the decree by January 1, 2016.
The proposed consent decree must go through a 30-day public comment period before Commonwealth Court’s final approval.
