Letter to the editor: cement plant will monitor toxins

Maybe the Fraser Valley will have cleaner air this fall. 

The asphalt plant on County Road 5 is required to put in some different equipment by September 15, 2023.  There will also be three meters to monitor toxins from the plant. Peak Materials, the plant operator, will have two and the county will have one. 

Peak, which operates a gravel pit, a cement plant and the asphalt plant from their location on County Road 5 was granted a two year special use permit which will expire in May 2025.

It is still to be determined how complaints are to be handled. In the meantime, continue to direct them to both the department of community development and the county commissioners.
