Erie, Pa. (WKBW-TV) - The owner of Tonawanda Coke- in more trouble this week but not for his plant here at home.
Officials with Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection issued an order to cease operations at Erie Coke, a plant very similar to Tonawanda Coke.
The shutdown has been appealed and will be discussed at a hearing this week in Pittsburgh.
Much like Tonawanda, the Erie plant has faced numerous violations for polluting the air over the past couple of years.
