The Ridley School District is  currently involved in an investigation by the state Department of Environmental Protection  regarding a 1983 asbestos disposal by a contractor. The contractor was working at a former high-school when he dumped the asbestos material at a landfill in Montgomery county.

School board solicitor John F.X Reilly informed the board at a December meeting that Boyertown Landfill was currently under investigation and remediation of the deadly material.

“There are dozens of parties that have been notified as well, including businesses, municipalities and school districts,” Reilly said. “They call all these parties potentially responsible parties.”

Reilly revealed that the DEP may hold Ridley responsible for a proportionate cost of dealing with the landfill. He also revealed the amount of Waste Ridley was responsible was relatively small but they remain a responsible party.

Reilly rejected requests to reveal the names of other parties involved , stated that there was no cost estimate on what it project could cost the district.

“We are waiting for a response from the DEP … we haven’t discussed or negotiated a resolution. We are in the very early phase right now,” Reilly said.
