Citizens for Pennsylvania's Future (PennFuture) have announced that they intend to sue the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection, the United States Environmental Protection Agency and Beazer East, Inc., for their alleged failure to protect the citizens of the Petrolia area and Fairview Township and Borough, Butler County from potentially harmful pollution to their drinking water caused by abandoned solid waste landfills in their community. This pollution resulted from waste dumped in the 1950's and 1960's from Beazer's (formerly Koppers Company) manufacturing plant, and contained hazardous substances that spilled out or leached into the drinking water wells of local citizens.
