Plans to build water filtration plant in Van Cortlandt Park halted again

Plans to build a water filtration plant in Norwood have come to a halt once again. The latest stop comes after a state Supreme Court judge lifted a temporary restraining order Thursday. The latest injunction brought to court by the Croton Watershed Clean Water Coalition prevents the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) from cutting down any trees in Van Cortlandt Park. The DEP has until October 15 to file response papers. With multiple lawsuits pending, the judge said the city may want to consolidate all the plant site cases and bring them into one courtroom. He believes this will keep the judicial process from getting out of control.
