Bottineau Neighborhood Association (BNA) and Concerned Citizens of Marshall Terrace (CCMP) are working in tandem to maintain community pressure on GAF to clean up its emissions.
On Thursday, October 23 at 7pm, all concerned neighborhood residents are encouraged to attend CCMP’s next community meeting dedicated to this issue, located at the RiverVillage Community Room, 2919 Randolph St. NE.
MPCA Air Monitoring Supervisor, Rick Strassman has said he would like to attend. If so, he will explain how air monitoring is currently being conducted on the Mississippi River near GAF. As supervisor for a pilot project that is currently being conducted in Minneapolis at other asphalt operations, he will also discuss the presence of carcinogens that are in these types of emissions but are not currently regulated at GAF or elsewhere.
If this is an issue you care about, mark your calendar and plan on attending.
