– Blindsided is how Parx casino and Philadelphia Park Racetrack felt after a
state environmental agency this week ordered the facility to “stop polluting,”
a company spokeswoman said.

Casino/racetrack
spokeswoman Carrie Nork Minelli said the facility has been in “constant
communication” with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and
will continue working to meet the agency’s requirements.

The business’ response
came a day after the DEP issued an order for the casino/track to take immediate
steps to “stabilize the site and eliminate environmental threats.” The DEP says
more than 1,200 horses are kept on the property and that manure-laden storm
water and wastewater are impacting the Neshaminy Creek watershed.
