Vermont Law School Clinic sues to clean up local water supplies
The Environmental and Natural Resources Law Clinic at Vermont Law School has filed suit on behalf of a local citizens group alleging that Omya Inc. is threatening local water supplies by dumping chemically treated waste into abandoned quarries. The law suit, filed in U.S. District Court, seeks injunctive relieve and an investigation into the wast to determine a safe method of disposal. An Associated Press article appearing in the Time Argus quoted Patrick Parenteau of the Clinic as saying “We want Omya to comply with state and federal law, which means stop dumping waste into the quarries.” The AP article notes that the Clinic had warned Omya in November that it would file the lawsuit if Omya failed to take corrective action.
