JAMES CITY – The Highland Township Board of Supervisors is gearing up for a possible court battle to block a proposed injection well for the disposal of drilling waste fluids.
Acting at a meeting Wednesday, Supervisors Jim Wolfe, Paul Burton Sr. and Joe Milstead approved an agreement for representation by the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF) of Mercersburg.
Thomas Linzey, attorney for CELDF, said the organization would provide free legal services to the township in its fight against the injection well. He addressed the meeting over a speaker phone. CELDF was represented at the meeting by Chad Nicholson, community rights network coordinator.
