Pinnacle/Vlasic Site Review

December 17th 2013 Delaware Department of Natural Resources (DNREC) held a public meeting in the Millsboro Town Hall to allow the Public to comment on their findings related to the “Brownsfields” remediation plan for polluted grounds at what was once the Vlassic pickle plant. This site is proposed for the new Allen- Harrim chicken processing plant. This site is in near proximity to many Millsboro area homes and tributaries of the Indian River creating concern that pollutants will migrate from the site to drinking water sources for the local residents and the Indian River. John Austin, Science Coordinator for the Inland Bays Foundation presented the Foundation’s detailed analysis of those findings.
