Representatives will be part of an informational forum at Paulsboro High School presented by the Paulsboro Borough Council and Mayor W. Jeffery Hamilton starting at 6PM. The forum includes a moderated question & answer session along with an update on the derailment.

Last week an open house presented by the unified command got loud as residents shouted questions at officials for answers about when they could go home.

Residents were allowed back into their homes on Friday after the air inside was tested for presence of vinyl chloride. All but 30 people have been allowed home. Their homes are along the Mantua Creek and heavy equipment will be used on their property for cleanup.

Wooden pilings and debris from the rail cars and bridge need to be cleared before the tank cars can be removed.
