Brownfield Action Team… will Chester lose? Desire Grover It's Getting Hot In Here October 10, 2008Chester, PA - According to a recent article in the Delco Times the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced that it will "fast-track the environmental remediation needed" along the Chester Waterfront in order to complete the Major League Soccer stadium by 2010. The DEP has given its stamp of approval on the project outside the concerns of some Chester locals and environmental groups.
According to Mike Ewall of the Energy Justice Network: "The stadium's alarmingly short timeline can't be good for Chester. Being a terribly toxic site, any legitimate cleanup effort cannot be done quickly. It'll end up being a mess-up, cover-up or move-around."
Despite the concern that "fast tracking" the project may expose Chester residents to even more toxins at the site, the Bucinni/Pollin Group assured Energy Justice that the site would be cleaned thoroughly. This promise was made during the latest Chester Environmental Partnership meeting held at the Faith Temple Holy Church, chaired by Rev. Horace Strand.
