It's a gas

 From Scott:

Speaker to talk about W. Wyoming Gas Compression Station

Matt Walker from the Clean Air Council will give a presentation on health issues regarding the proposed UGI Compressor Station and pipelines on Wednesday, May 23, at p.m. at the West Wyoming Borough Building on 464 West 8th St. The Residents are urged to attend.
Matt will discuss the following topics:

Air Pollutants from Compressor Stations are Linked with Health Issues
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Nitrous Oxides (NOx), Formaldehyde, Methane
5 Dud Drilling Blowouts in Dallas spewing thousands of gallons of Bentonite Clay, a cancer causing carcinogen into wetlands might occur here as well.

Other Concerns
Noise: The engines at the station run constantly and can be very loud, especially when releasing pressurized natural gas periodically to change equipment
Odor: The pollutants emitted from engines have the potential to create strong and unpleasant odors
Visible emissions: Stations have the potential to emit dark plumes as a result of malfunctioning equipment

Also, Matt will discuss the new DEP regulations to prevent public comment and file reviews what will take away the people's rights to speak out against the industrialization of our community.
