PA Coat of Arms

UPDATE:  Chrin Brothers has agreed to withdraw its appeal and to pay a fine of $114,000 and undertake new measures to minimize odors and air pollution problems. See our September 20, 2011 post.

Chrin Brothers, Inc. has appealed the December 28, 2009 fine of $187,500 imposed by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) for air pollution and waste management violations at its landfill. See our post of December 28, 2009 for more details on the landfill facility and the PADEP fine. As we noted in our post, appeals of PADEP civil penalty assessments are filed with the Environmental Hearing Board (“EHB”). 

Detailed information about the Chrin Landfill appeal can be followed at the EHB website case information page and the docket sheet for the appeal. Standard scheduling orders have been issued in the case.
