Moon Meadows Campground Remains Closed
Erie County, Pa., Department of Health inspectors did not grant Moon Meadows Owner Tom Peckham a license to operate his Greenfield Township campground during an inspection on Tuesday (Aug. 24), the Erie Times-News reported.
Inspectors said Peckham needs to remove more underground sewage lines that he installed without a permit.
But the main problem is a 35-year-old water well that serves the campground's residents. The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection did not approve the well as a transient or community public water system during an inspection last week.
"We have concerns about where the well is located and how it is constructed," DEP regional spokeswoman Freda Tarbell said.
