Hexavalent Chromium Cleanup Suit Can Proceed

A lawsuit calling for the cleanup of industrial waste generated by PPG Industries in a highly populated area of Jersey City got the go ahead Tuesday from a federal district judge in Newark.

PPG has yet to comply with a 1990 state mandate to remove hexavalent chromium from land surrounding a PPG production facility, according to the lawsuit. The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the Interfaith Community Organization filed the lawsuit in February 2009.
