Frey Farm Landfill Expansion Meeting in Lancaster County. Stop Turkey Hill from becoming Mount Trashmore!
The landfill is big enough already, and now they want to pile up other people’s trash and ruin our nearly $100 million investment to make the lower Susquehanna a world-class attraction. Act now!
If you don’t want our legacy to our children to be a landfill as the biggest hill in the lower Susquehanna Hills, and you don’t want Lancaster and the Susquehanna to be the dumping ground for other people’s trash, then you want to be at these upcoming meetings on June 18th and July 28th at the Manor Township Municipal Building, 950 West Fairway Drive, Lancaster, PA 17603.
The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has scheduled a public meeting and public hearing to discuss and receive testimony on an application for a vertical expansion and increase in average and maximum daily volumes of waste accepted for disposal at Lancaster County Solid Waste Management’s Frey Farm Landfill located in Manor Township, Lancaster County.
The informational public meeting will be held on Thursday, June 18, 2015, and the public hearing where you can comment will be held on Tuesday, July 28, 2015. Both events will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. and will be held at the Manor Township Municipal Building, 950 West Fairway Drive, Lancaster, PA 17603. At the public meeting, the applicant will present their application, and DEP will explain the application review process. The public meeting will then be an open forum to discuss the application and for the public to comment or ask questions. DEP will receive formal public testimony at the public hearing but will not answer any questions at that time.
Each person providing testimony will have up to 10 minutes for his or her testimony. DEP will then prepare a written public comment/response document within 45 days of the hearing and distribute the document to all who provided testimony. Any person intending to testify at the public hearing should register by Friday, July 24, 2015, by calling Tim Fuller at 717.705.4706.

Susquehanna Biathlon, June 27th. REGISTER NOW!
Less than 3 weeks until the 5th Annual Susquehanna Biathlon! The Susquehanna Biathlon is back for 2015 with the same unique run-paddle combination and beautiful course! No other event in Central PA combines two of our favorite hobbies – trail running and river paddling – for the best cause of all: supporting clean water. We hope you will run and paddle with us on June 27th and support Lower Susquehanna Riverkeeper’s work keeping our water fishable, swimable, and drinkable!
Like previous years, the Biathlon is roughly a 5.5 km run from the lot adjacent the John Wright Restaurant in Wrightsville, to a paddling launch site just upriver from the Accomac Inn. The second leg is a paddle downriver with an exciting finish back at the start by the John Wright’s public boat launch.
The running course starts with a brief road section, followed by gravel and private road with a short rocky trail section. There are slight uphills and downhills, and of course the paddle always refreshes and stimulates starting with an easy flatwater paddle followed by an exciting class I whitewater finish!
We know some folks just want to support Lower Susquehanna Riverkeeper, so we’ve kept the race open for two hours to accommodate both those speedy racers and those who want to enjoy the race in a more leisurely fashion.
