Annotation:
According to the article, environmental justice groups will challenge California’s Department of Toxic Substances Control (“DTSC”) for its “handling of several hazardous waste facility expansions that were approved or that are expected to be approved . . . [by skipping] public participation requirements mandated by law.” The DTSC disagreed and defended its issuance of a permit to Industrial Services Oil Co., Inc, which proposed to “expand its hazardous waste treatment and storage practices by accepting more types of hazardous waste.” The environmental justice groups will assert that DTSC failed to properly follow public participation requirements. In addition, the groups will call for a local advisory committee to participate at the local level and help the community understand the implications of the facility expansion. Article taken from “Environmental Justice in the News” for the Week Ending February 16, 2007.
