Environmental group files lawsuit against East Liverpool waste incinerator plant

Posted: Updated:

An environmental watchdog group filed a lawsuit against an East Liverpool company that operates a hazardous waste incinerator plant.

Save Our County is asking a federal court to prevent Heritage Thermal Services from exposing the public to illegal amounts of harmful air pollution.

The lawsuit alleges that the company violated the Clean Air Act by exceeding emissions limits.

Last year, the EPA accused Heritage Thermal Services of allowing toxins to contaminate the air .

While the company says its been in talks with the EPA since then, the watchdog group doesn't believe enough is being done to protect residents.  Heritage Thermal Services spokesperson Raymond Wayne says the company plans to vigorously defend the lawsuit.
