About PCCE                     

Our Technical Assistance Grant (TAG) from the USEPA has enabled PCCE to pay for technical reviews of studies relating to the Palmerton Zinc Superfund Site. These technical reviews help the average citizen understand what is happening in our community and the potential impact to them, their family, their homes, and their community.   Without this understanding, they are unable to make informed decisions that directly impact their lives.
