The City of Winona will hold a silica sand air quality monitoring roundtable meeting from 4 p.m.-6 p.m. Tuesday, October 7th, at the City’s Senior Friendship Center, 251 Main Street, Winona.
In early 2014, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) placed two air quality monitors at the Winona YMCA. At this meeting, representatives from the MPCA will discuss monitoring results thus far. Agency representatives will also discuss air monitoring at silica sand facilities and the status of silica sand air quality state rulemaking. City of Winona staff will also present results of moisture testing at silica sand operations in Winona.
The meeting is open to the public. Discussion and questions will be limited to those at the roundtable. Members of the roundtable will include representatives of the Winona City Council, Planning Commission, Citizen’s Environmental Quality Committee, Board of Adjustment, City staff, and the MPCA.
