Riverkeeper keeps fighting for cleanup
Sunday, October 09, 2005

Paddlers, anglers, birders, hunters -- all people spending time along the Delaware River downstream since an Aug. 23 pollution spill -- are being asked to serve as roving reporters for the Delaware Riverkeeper Network.

The nonprofit group is recording, and passing along to federal and state authorities, reports of coal fly ash contamination relating to the massive discharge of the substance from the Pennsylvania Power & Light (PPL) power plant on the river in Martins Creek, Pa.

Tracy Carlucci, special projects director for the Riverkeeper, said she's been receiving e-mails from b [no swearing please] fishermen, canoeists and others. The observations are being forwarded to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other agencies, said Carlucci. The Riverkeeper is pressing the EPA to take charge of the river's cleanup by deeming it a Superfund site.
