Activists call for fertilizer plant in Hunts Point to be cleaned up or shut down
Activists are once again calling for the fertilizer plant in Hunts Point to either be cleaned up or shut down.
The activists feel that the smell coming from the plant may cause health problems. They want the Environmental Protection Agency to do its job after ruling that the Department of Environmental Conservation must rewrite the fertilizer plants air permit by the end of the month.
The plant manager says he is working closely with regulators to ensure that the proper guidelines are being followed. He says New York Fertilizer Company, which runs the plant, is committed to the safe and clean operation of the facility.
