SugarHouse Penalized for Polluting Delaware River
Is this what SugarHouse meant when they pledged to expand their presence on the Delaware River? By dumping construction materials in the Delaware River?
Prosecutors said workers at the site of the Delaware Avenue casino were spotted dumping materials into the river on more than a dozen occasions in 2009 and 2010 without the proper permits to do so. The dumping continued after the casino operators received three cease-and-desist letters from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
So they’re paying $650,000 for the damage–nearly all of it to the Brandywine Conservancy, which protects natural resources. See? They are good corporate citizens! [Inquirer]
