A pair of environmental groups have filed a federal suit against PPG Industries under the Clean Water Act and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act over the company’s former glass manufacturing site in Ford City.

PennEnvironment and the Sierra Club filed the suit after sending a notice letter to PPG Industries (NYSE: PPG) on Nov. 2.


“PPG has had five decades to properly remediate this site, stop its illegal pollution, and protect the Allegheny River,” said Erika Staaf, PennEnvironment’s Clean Water Advocate, in a written statement. “Our environmental laws are meaningless if polluters can violate them with impunity. When persistent violations are not addressed by the government, our federal environmental laws allow private citizens to enforce the law and protect the environment.”
