  Update on PCB Contaminated Soil Dumped by Wareham Development in Richmond
September 30, 2016

The City of Richmond has refused to grant Wareham Development a permit to store the PCB-contaminated soil in Richmond and has ordered them to remove it. In a letter dated September 30, 2016, Wareham has committed to contact the City on Monday to “confirm exactly which day that removal will occur.”

The letter also indicates that the dumping was “approved by the Regional Water Quality Control Board.” I am looking into by what authority the Water Board approved this dumping of PCB-contaminated soil in Richmond without a permit.
