There Art Documental indicating criminal negligence on the part of the went Virginia dept of environmental Protection Dep. Far from restraining this rogue polluter the Dep appears to have colluded with the environmental Quality Board and blocked the scientific verification of High radioactivity in do cd son site sludge pits. Moreover when removing those pits the Dep fraudulently listed the sludge As a not radioactive Quot in order to dump it into Raleigh county a Landfill As a regulating Agency the Dep certainly knew that the High radioactivity in the sludge would be concentrated up to to times higher than in the waste. Meanwhile dec has been allowed to ignore important protective regulations since it began dumping in Fayette county in 2002. This includes the last 18 months when Dep rescinded the old dec permit but then immediately issued a waiver which allowed the company to proceed As before. At its recent zoning Board meeting Fayette county commissioners clearly agreed that dec does not financially Benefit the county. Therefore allowing this scofflaws facility to continue endangering Public health is a dereliction of your Agency a duty.
