URGENT: Public hearing is THIS THURSDAY. Please try to attend and add your comments to LDEQ on this petition immediately.
The Pin Oak Terminal just opened this year and the young company already has a history of violations and compliance issues at this facility. Yet, Pin Oak is already asking the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality for a massive increase in emissions in close proximity to the Mount Airy community and the Mississippi River.
Pin Oak's new application fails to properly assure the residents that air quality stands will not be exceeded and that it is adequately protecting the environment.
Pollution, Health Effects and Environmental Risks:
We are counting on the Louisiana Department of Environment Quality to enforce all regulations protecting the environment and residents, especially the health and safety of our children. And, while air pollution and chemical spills affects us all, there is a stark difference across the region - Mount Airy residents are harmed first and worst.
Stand up for us, support clean, and make it safe for everyone to breathe.
