Divergent recommendations on air quality monitoring for city (06/23/2013)
By Chris Rogers

On Monday, the city of Winona Planning Commission will consider referring the Citizens’ Environmental Quality Committee’s (CEQC) recommendation that the city require immediate monitoring of airborne silica dust to a state committee expected to be established by October 1. A law passed last month called on the Minnesota Environmental Quality Board to create a “Silica Sand Technical Assistance Team” made up of state agency staff to consult local governments upon request. The same law calls on the state board to develop standards that involve air monitoring and dust control, among other things.

In early May, the CEQC recommended that the city require air quality monitoring for silica dust “if immediate state action is unavailable.” Their discussion of the issue came after the city council asked on March 4 for the Planning Commission and the CEQC subcommittee to consider “proactive” monitoring of silica dust before state action.

The CEQC also recommended monitoring diesel fumes along truck routes.

The planning commission meeting will be held on Monday at 4:30 p.m. in the council chambers at City Hall.
