Mountaire Ground Water Contamination & Pollution

Attention Residents of Sussex County, DE

We are working to understand the severity of the contamination and its effect on the residents of Sussex County, Delaware. This contamination has caused physical injuries, property damage and, ultimately, will require a permanent solution. There is evidence to suggest that this is not a recent problem and understanding Mountaire’s various permits, activities and all of the different aspects of the contamination are the priorities.
