Poultry producer seeks change to Delaware facility demands
A poultry producer is asking for a change to the decision that grants it a special use exception for a deboning facility in Delaware.
An Allen Harim spokesperson tells WBOC-TV the company found the condition that its spray irrigation system must be upgraded, approved, permitted and operational before the Millsboro facility is operational too restrictive. That condition was one of two set by the Board of Adjustment in its May decision approving the facility, over the objections of those with environmental concerns.
Allen Harim says it’s working with the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control to find the best options for its wastewater.
The DNREC slapped Allen Harim with nearly $250,000 in penalties and other costs for years of wastewater violations at its chicken processing plant in Harbeson.
