Baird Requests Immediate Halt of Hazardous Materials Delivery to Roachdale Facility
Greencastle, March 3, 2023
Greencastle, IN — Today, Congressman Baird sent a letter to the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) requesting further deliveries of hazardous materials from the East Palestine train derailment to the Heritage Environmental Services in Roachdale, IN, be halted immediately.
“Last week, our state was blindsided by the announcement that the EPA would be relocating hazardous materials from the East Palestine train derailment to Roachdale,” said Congressman Baird. “Hoosiers deserve to know exactly what’s happening in their own backyard, and until we have full transparency and proper oversight, I am respectfully asking IDEM to halt further transportation of hazardous materials to our state.”
