Letter: Dust abatement

Monday, May 13 2013

At this time the unpaved roads on our island are a virtual dust bowl. 

I am asking on behalf of all the people that live on these roads for drivers to slow down when going past our homes.

On the hot days we cannot even open a window due to the very fine dust that is stirred up every time a car goes by. 

I have left a few messages for Emcon but have not heard back as to when they may be expected to lay down some dust abatement on our roads. 

In the mean time you have my heartfelt thanks if you slow down. 

Just maybe if Emcon gets enough complaints they will do something about this problem.
