The Maryland Department of the Environment is about to issue a new permit covering wastewater discharge and sludge disposal at the Valley Protein rendering plant in Linkwood, Dorchester County, Maryland.
Residents of the Transquaking and Nanticoke watersheds, and other concerned Lower Shore citizens, are encouraged to attend.
If you are concerned about noxious odors and water pollution emanating from the VP plant, as well as dispersal of sludge created by the plant onto farmland in the Transquaking and Nanticoke watersheds, this is the best opportunity to make your voice heard.
Written comments concerning the tentative determination will be considered in the preparation of a final determination if submitted to the Department before 5 p.m. on Wednesday, December 15, 2021.
Comments should be directed via email to: Michael.Richardson@Maryland.gov
