Dust from excavation and trucks in the railyard is visible in this photo submitted with an incident report today. Dust suppression measures are supposed to be put in place in order to protect air quality for workers on the project and the community nearby. The Amended Environmental Commitments Memo states:
FCRC shall require its contractors to implement dust suppression measures including the following:
iii. Watering unpaved surfaces, including haul roads and excavation faces. All unpaved haul roads and excavation surfaces shall be continuously watered by watering trucks or constant misting, so that surfaces remain damp at all times when in use during construction. Gravel cover shall be applied to unpaved surfaces which are regularly traveled."
