Letter to the Editor: Dust control

To the Editor:

In the matter of the petition about dust in Irish Hollow:

According to the Iowa Department of Transportation, a mine operator is allowed to move 5,000 ton of product or roughly 333 loads without dust control measures per project.

Depending on how many trucks you have, it may take days, weeks or months. The people on the petition and others should do a little fact finding before wanting to contact a mine operator about dust control.

If you don’t like the dust, maybe you shouldn’t live on a gravel road or do something about it yourself.
