Approve air quality monitoring (11/27/2013)
From: Cherie Hales

Wiscoy Township

I have been following the letters and articles in both the Daily News and Post regarding air quality monitoring in Winona. Although I live in rural Winona County, I shop and socialize in Winona and have an interest in what happens in the city.

I am frankly astonished that the Planning Commission would fail to recommend accepting the MPCA’s monitoring proposal. Since there is clearly the possibility that the frac sand industry might grow in our region, meaning more truck traffic and more silica dust and diesel particulates - why would you not want to have a baseline before that increase happens? With a baseline you can track changes over time. Without it you have nothing but supposition. And silica dust and diesel particulates are recognized health hazards.

To safeguard the health and safety of the people living in Winona, the Planning Commission needs to recommend accepting MPCA air quality monitoring and send it to the City Council for approval. It is way past time to act on this.
