PRKN has filed a Notice of Intent to sue for the ongoing unlawful discharge of suspended solids from the sediment pond at Specialty Granules LLC’s Charmian facility, located at 1455 Old Waynesboro Road, Blue Ridge Summit, PA 17214.

Upper Potomac Riverkeeper Brent Walls said, “My investigations have demonstrated continuing and unauthorized discharges which discolor Miney Branch and nearby wetlands and risk the quality of Miney Branch, Tom’s Creek, the Monocacy and the Potomac Rivers.  The Clean Water Act is being violated and nearby residents, and all six million of us who rely on the Potomac watershed for our drinking water, deserve better.”
