Comments on Proposed Modification of Consent Decree Regarding Bayer CropScience Plant Explosion

People Concerned About Chemical Safety, the Natural Resources Defense Council and the Charleston branch of the NAACP wrote to the U.S. Department of Justice about an administration effort to cut Bayer’s payments under a federal settlement with the DOJ and the Environmental Protection Agency by nearly $1.4 million. The groups objected to the proposal, which would replace improvements in the Bayer plant’s wastewater treatment system — aimed at curbing chemical discharges into the Kanawha River — with a “far less costly” program that involves buying emergency response equipment for two local volunteer fire departments. Other groups signing onto the letter were the Ohio Valley Environmental Coalition, the West Virginia-Citizen Action Group and the West Virginia Rivers Coalition.
