Quote from Alan Muller, Coordinator of Green Delaware:
"Delaware's waters are polluted from one end of the state to the other with
toxic chemicals, runoff, and raw sewage. As Green Delaware
has fought against water pollution, the Delaware Division of
Water Resources has become more and more hostile to US, while taking step
after step to accommodate water polluters."
"We have now received two written demands for our membership list. Of
course we have said 'no.'"
"The Delaware Division of Water Resources should be going after water
polluters, not environmentalists."
Quote from Jacob Kreshtool, member of the Green Delaware Steering Committee,
and head of Del. Citizens for Clean Air:
"Like diapers, environmental officials need changing every so often, and
for much the same reason."
Environmental decisions should be decided on their merits, and not on the
identity of citizens, nor on their personalities, nor on their numbers, nor on
"This demand is guaranteed to chill public participation"
