Enforcement Success at Millen’s Scrap Yard

Millen’s Scrap Yard at the mouth of historic Rondout Creek has
long been polluted with petroleum, PCBs and other contaminants.
Since 2006, Riverkeeper has pressured the Department of
Environmental Conservation (DEC) to compel Millen’s to remediate
the pollution. After a recent step-up in pressure from
Riverkeeper, the DEC found that Millen’s is in violation of a
1998 Order to remediate its site. Riverkeeper will continue to
monitor this case closely.
