Abstract:
Debate is taking place over a proposed hazardous waste disposal facility to be built by ThermalKEM in rural Northampton County. The residents of Woodland and the black community are split over the decision. The opposition is concerned about public health, corporate promises, and property values while the group in favor of the facility says it will bring jobs to an area with high unemployment, little tax revenue, and community services.
