Environmental Violations in Delaware Spotlight

Delaware Gov. Thomas Carper has directed the Department of Natural Resources

and Environmental Control to post information about environmental violations

on its World Wide Web site.

"In the past, for environmental violations, a press release wasn't always

issued," said Anthony Farina, the governor's press secretary.

"Now, when an organization breaks an environmental regulation, it will

automatically be posted on the Web site."

Current violations are posted online in the form of press releases linked

to DNREC's Web site, www.dnrec.state.de.us. DNREC Webmaster Mike Polo said

that once he is given past violations, they will be posted as soon as possible

in chart form.

Farina said posting environmental violations online is part of Carper's

plan to "provide better services and information for Delaware residents."
