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.
