Have the results from our testing at 106 been shared?  I have not  
heard the results and it's been way over 10 days by now.

Also detecting low levels this afternoon in my office (rm 310) at 106.  
  I notified Cheryl this morning (she may have emailed) that I was  
also detecting them this morning here and in 314 as well.

I spoke with Dave Shepard, from VT Air Pollution Control, at length  
this morning. I shared all your comments with him.

His plan is to do the following:

Contact occupants who have been impacted by the plant odors. If he  
calls you please share with him the names and numbers of other UVM  
employees who have also been affected or might have witnessed plant  
operations of concern. This is his number in case you want to talk to  
him and he hasn't called you: 802-229-1744. He is using his home phone  
number, due to flooding issues, so please call during business hours.

Contact and visit the asphalt plant to check their records on when  
they are using the recycled asphalt (wrap), why they have need to use  
it from the pile that is uncovered instead of the covered area, what  
might have been different about last week, wondering about odors  
released from the stack versus the drying wrap odors that might be  
released from lower down in the plant, checking into particulates that  
might be associated with the lower release rather than what they  
measure coming out of the stack.

Please continue to let us know when you are having problems.
