This month is a critical time for CASE's efforts to reduce toxic air emissions from the Lafarge plant in Ravena. Lafarge's proposal to modernize their plant has been submitted to the DEC and is open for public comment. The outcome of this proposal will have an enormous impact on air quality, human health and the environment for this region for decades to come.
CASE is working closely in partnership with Friends of Hudson to review and comment on Lafarge's proposal. However, it is essential that we hire some top notch technical experts to help if we are going to fully ensure that Lafarge's proposal is truly state of the art, comprehensive, and fully protective of human health.
And that means that we need your help.
Please consider participating in our February Fundraising Drive. Proceeds for monies raised during the month of February will go toward payment of technical expert review of Lafarge's Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for their proposed modernization.
As part of this effort, we are happy to announce our first-ever:
