On Thursday, December 3rd the Blue Ridge
Environmental Defense League and the Serious Chester County

release new information about air poisons and health impacts from
the proposed Covanta incinerator in Chester County. The press
conference will take place at the Chester County Library on 100
Center Street in Chester and will begin at 1:00 PM.
The Leagues science director, Lou Zeller, will present US
EPA air pollution models of the Chester County site showing
dangerous levels of contaminants from the proposed incinerator.

of hydrochloric acid and mercury from the incinerator.
The Serious Chester County Residents Against Pollution is the
newest chapter in the multi-state Blue Ridge Environmental
Defense League. Jimmy Bruce of Richburg has been chosen as the
chair of SCCRAPs steering committee. The group is
concentrating on turnout to the December 7th meeting of the

and turning around the opinions of their elected leaders.
