Time to be proac­tive on chicken farms

Cecil Whig - - OPINION -


In re­sponse to the Whig’s Aug. 29 editorial on the chicken fac­tor y con­tro­versy, let me an­swer the ques­tion posed, “What does this say to fu­ture em­ploy­ers?”

Do­ing noth­ing says, “Hey come on in. You say you might con­tam­i­nate wells or pol­lute? We will worr y about that later.”

Ce­cil County this is our chance to be proac­tive not re­ac­tive. We need more in­for­ma­tion, more sci­ence to ei­ther back up Per­due’s claims or dis­prove them. Don’ let this be­come a cleanup is­sue later, get it right now.

If these CAFOs are tr uly good clean neigh­bors, then they should em­brace a lit­tle more fact find­ing.
