Pennsylvania DEP Fines Butler County Landfill for Odor Violations

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) has fined the Seneca Landfill in Butler County, Pa., $22,000 for odor control violations.

“Over the past six months, DEP has responded to numerous odor complaints from residents living near the landfill,” said DEP Regional Director Kelly Burch in a press release. “Inspectors traced the odors back to the landfill and the facility’s failure to implement its odor control plan fully. Seneca has corrected the violations, but DEP inspectors will continue to monitor the landfill as they do with all others.”
