The DuPont DeLisle plant received a permit yesterday that could eventually lead to a landfill expansion. A state agency approved the company's mining and stormwater permit that allows DuPont to open a 40 acre pit clay mine on Kiln DeLisle Road. Materials from that site would be used to expand any landfills and cap off other storage units.
The company still has to receive other permits before the actual landfill can be built on company property. DuPont say they are still looking at alternative sites.
