Mountaire offers to dig new wells for 88 Millsboro-area neighbors; some aren't appeased - The News Journal
The Sussex County chicken plant accused of polluting groundwater near Millsboro now says it will pay to dig deeper wells for 88 of its neighbors or connect them to a public water supply.
Phillips’ home is one of about 80 in the area that gets its drinking water from wells now identified as at risk of contamination from high levels of nitrates and other substances released by Mountaire’s poultry plant.
State officials say Mountaire Farms’ Millsboro plant has been polluting groundwater and failing to comply with its state permit to dispose of wastewater on nearby farm fields.
Lisa McCabe never gave much thought to the poultry processing plant a little more than a mile from her home, other than holding her nose from the stench.
