Today WHYY has a good piece about the Covanta incinerator in Chester. This piece has a lot of useful links connecting to studies about pollution in Delaware County as well as quoting members of CRCQL (Chester Residents Concerned for Quality Living). The article is especially timely because Delaware County’s Solid Waste Authority is holding a virtual public hearing on the renewal of the waste contract the county has with the incinerator. Although I can’t find any listing of the meeting on the Solid Waste Authority or County’s websites, the information to access the meeting has been sent around by CRCQL. CRCQL has asked that those who are able to participate to please do so and show that the public is paying attention to this contract. If you are interested, the meeting is at 3:30 pm on Wednesday, May 5th. Contact me here and I’ll send along the login information for the meeting.
And as a reminder, today is the last day to register to vote ahead of the primary! There’s only a few hours remaining. You can register online here.
Update – WHYY did later publish a piece about the hearing.
