Miracle! PA DEP Approves Plum (Pittsburgh) Injection Well Permit

In early 2018, the federal EPA approved a new Marcellus wastewater injection well for the Pittsburgh suburb of Plum Boro (see Federal EPA Approves Permit for Plum, PA Wastewater Injection Well). The PA Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP) also needs to approve it. They held a public hearing in October 2018 to elicit input, a hearing where every single person who spoke was against the project (see Plum Injection Well Hearing Draws Solid Opposition). Following that hearing a lawsuit challenging the project was filed in March 2019 (see Court Challenge to Plum Zoning Against Injection Well Proceeds). Now, more than two years after the federal EPA approved it, the PA DEP has also given its blessing. It’s a miracle!
