DEP Returns Clean Earth’s Application for the Wellsboro-Johnston Airport Project in Tioga County

Proposal To Extend Wellsboro Airport With Gas Well Drill Cuttings Is Dead

The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) today announced that it is returning the NPDES permit application for stormwater construction to Clean Earth Inc. related to the company’s proposed use of treated drill cuttings for fill at the Wellsboro-Johnston Airport in Tioga County.

“Clean Earth has not fully responded to the deficiencies in the application and has agreed that the application should be withdrawn for the Tioga County project,” said DEP North-central Regional Director Marcus Kohl. “The department is deeming it withdrawn and returning it.”

DEP had been conducting technical reviews of the NPDES permit application and a site-specific approval under the company’s existing Waste Management Research and Development General Permit.

The department held a public meeting and hearing in late February in Wellsboro to discuss the project and accept public testimony.
