DEP issues pollution violation to Weiler

The Department of Environmental Protection issued a notice of violation to the Weiler Corporation for polluting a pond on its property.

Weiler is in the process of remediating the spill.

The pond sits to the left of a land bridge at the company’s entrance and creates a smaller pond through a culvert to the right of the roadway.

Weiler Corp. first noticed a sheen on the pond in front of the facility and tried to determine what the source of the substance was, according to Weiler President and CEO Chris Weiler. They learned of the source on Feb. 3.

“It was likely some underground storage tanks that are used to heat and cool the building,” he said.
