This is an appeal of an order of the Environmental Hearing Board (EHB) dismissing the appeals of Franklin Township and Fayette County from the action of the Department of Environmental Resources (DER) granting a permit to Elwin Farm, Inc. for the disposal and processing of industrial waste. The EHB dismissed the appeal on the ground that the county and township lacked standing. We affirm.
