Whoa there Vince, you'll find most of those who were at the meeting have
"I heart drilling!" stickers all over their trucks, or work at the OTHER
phosphate plant or the power plant. The Dry Fork area is secluded and
hasn't been affected by our energy boom (they are upset because it
hasn't been in their back yard, just us lower in the valley). All you hear
around here is it's about JOBS JOBS JOBS and the mass trucks and dirty air,
that has all the local mothers well trained to use breathing treatments for the
children, is just "fog". There has been a lot of greed as well, by many
at this meeting, because it hasn't affected them, just made them richer.
Stick up for your rights citizens and tell the "bib business" greeds to
take a hike!
I have to agree. We live near here, and our water comes from Ashley Valley Water
District. And even though the phosphate company said we will not hear or feel
any blasts, we already feel and hear the blasts at the existing phosphate mine
further north of us.We live in an area of mining and oil production,
and I am usually in favor of both. But if this is going to impact our water
quality and availability, and it sounds like that is a possibility, then I would
have to oppose going forward with it.
