Statement from Darrell Smith on Federal Lawsuit Challenging Baltimore City Emission Standards

Arlington, VA – “NWRA joins Wheelabrator and Curtis Bay Energy LP in asking the federal court to declare the Baltimore Clean Air Act to be unlawful and preempted under federal and Maryland laws.  The solid waste facilities operated by Wheelebrator and Curtis Bay Energy LP have met all science-based emissions standards established under federal and state laws and are fully licensed to operate under federal and state law. The facilities are an indispensable component of Baltimore’s solid waste management plan.”
