Contact commissioners regarding asphalt plant ruling

Print Article

In response to board revisiting asphalt plant ruling:

I hope those concerned by the proposed asphalt plant, in Sagle, will speak out. I would like the county commissioners to consult with EPA Region 10 for their advice on the matter.

Given that the asphalt plant would be located on the top of Southside Water and Sewer Districtís aquifers, which provides for over 220 homes, Iím very concerned.

Hydro-carbon, found in asphalt, is heavier than water. If the asphalt isnít contained properly, and hydro-carbon contaminates the aquifers this pristine water source will forever be ruined.

I believe in small businesses; I own one myself. Creating jobs is important, especially for our small community. Iím not an expert on asphalt or aquifers. However, I think the potential risk associated with building an asphalt plant over a critical water source, is far too great.

You can contact commissioners Dan McDonald, Jeff Connolly and Steven Bradshaw by calling 265-1438 or emailing through this address: https://www.bonnercountyid.gov/departments/commissioners
