Community Information Meeting to stop the Jaindl warehouse
Community Information Meeting (virtual)
Wednesday, July 27, 6:00pm- 7:30pm
YOUR help is needed to protect OUR drinking water,
OUR rural character and
Jaindl’s proposed 2.7 million sq. ft. warehouses and road widening will discharge 40,000 gallons of sewage a day into the ground in an area with a long history of sinkholes. Everyday, 1271 MORE tractor-trailers will clog Route 519 and this is a 24/7 operation. Add to that the 1000+ employee vehicles all spewing harmful pollutants into the air. Stormwater runoff from this massive industrial site threatens our groundwater and the water quality of the Delaware River and the Buckhorn Creek.
Jaindl is now looking trying to amend a NJ Water Quality Plan (WQMP) that was written to PROTECT OUR water quality and quantity. With your help, we can stop him!

Did you know…
- White Twp. does not want this! The Twp Committee voted to oppose the WQMP Amendment
- 40,000 gallons/day of sewage will be generated on the site? All the sewage will be discharged into the ground and degrade groundwater quality
- The massive sewage disposal field is located in an area with a long history of sinkholes formation. Farm equipment has fallen into some of those sinkholes
- Sewage will drain into the groundwater and the underground aquifer, which feeds the Delaware River?
- Contrary to DEP guidance, the project proposes to infiltrate stormwater runoff over the highly-erodible karst leading to more sinkholes and underground erosion
- Increased potential for sinkholes that can undermine foundations of the proposed warehouses, area roads and the small, remaining farmland
- Parking lot lighting will cause light pollution in White Township’s dark sky farmlands degrading your quality-of-life and impacting on migratory fish and bird species.
- An existing vernal pond supporting frogs and salamanders will be obliterated
- A land conservancy has attempted to purchase this land multiple times and has been denied by Janidl
