Niagra Bottling reportedly stops accepting deliveries of water from West Penn Fort Franklin Road site due to poor quality

In early November, residents of West Penn Township near Jay Land's company Ringgold Acquisition Group's water extraction site on Fort Franklin Road had their water quality go to hell. It turned brown, developed extreme sediment, and a foul odor. It became unsafe and unusable. This was after water extraction at the Fort Franklin Road site was increased quickly to 100,000 gallons a day, falling just under a DEP permit trigger quantity. Both investigators and residents had documented that 15 tankers a day were hauling water from the site to Niagra Bottling in Allentown.


As of November 2, the last tanker truck reportedly left the Fort Franklin Road site. Reports are that the water from Fort Franklin had prematurely ruined 10's of thousands of dollars of filters. In short, the water was poor quality.  On November 9, Mr. Land had two new wells drilled a the Fort Franklin Road site.

What goes around comes around.
Niagra says no mas!
