Sewage Plant Expansion not Stopped but Regulatory Review Change Resulted

DRN, et al. v. PaDEP and Portland Borough (Pennsylvania EHB appeal numbers 2003-083-MG; 2003-299-MG): Appeal of Act 537 Plan and NPDES permit for the construction of a Sewage Treatment Plant and its related discharge of treated effluent in the Delaware River that is soon to be designated Special Protection Waters by the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) Although we lost the actual decision in this case, our litigation resulted in a change in the way the DRBC reviews 537 Plans.
