The Connell Asphalt company is planning to build their new plant directly behind the Buffalo Creek Community. They are claiming that it has new standards that pose less of a health risk. Even with these standards, it is not safe to be living within at least 3 miles away from these plants. They got it approved to be lower than the legal standard (1000 feet) to 800 feet. Living near these plants drops your home value by up to 56% if you look up the statistics. The smell and noise is intolerable. Studies have shown people living within 1 mile of these plants, up to 45% of people develop health conditions. Ranging from high blood pressure, burning eyes, sinus problems, and the potential to develop cancer. The plants emit chemicals ranging from arsenic, benzene, formaldehyde, VOC and cadmium. We need to start a petition to stop this company from coming here, and contact local government.
