Thank you for commenting and caring about our Clean Air and shoreline in North Lake Washington.
If you wish to watch and hear the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency Cadman Draft Air Permit Hearing April 18, here is the link. I hope you can access it if you are interested.
I plan to celebrate casually the end of the comment period by meeting at the 192 on Friday May 13 around 5pm. It’s an opportunity to discuss the City and the environment. May 17 is a hearing I need to learn more about: Missing Middle and potential loss of trees; Tolt Path across Swamp Creek wetllands (hope it’s scrubbed ASAP); what will happen when PSCAA responds to our comments regarding Cadman and what did Cadman say in their comments; Climate Action; ETC …
Dear Mr. Renninger,
In earlier comment to you, we believe we pointed out flaws in the report that Cadman submitted via Trinity for its modeling of emissions. It’s likely that if a new model were employed with a new analysis of the emissions, based on more appropriate inputs, that it would reveal exceedances of standards. In that case, we would be concerned about long term toxic exposures which we believe would justify a health or symptom or cancer cluster survey. Would you please consider such a survey as a possibility to be required in the permit?
We believe a symptom survey would be helpful to rule out the risk of there being any danger due to exposures to the emissions.
