to allow the plant to supplement its current kiln feeling system, which utilizes fossil feels, with no more than 50 percent hazardous waste. This, Schneider laid, would allow LaFarge to reduce its costs and stay competitive in their industry.
According to Schneider, there are numerous plants around the nation operating under state licenses and federal licenses well within the heath requirements of ■the E.P.A, and that trace ele-I men ta are a natural by-product of I manufacturing.
I Further, Schneider said that ■tho $1.8 million fine leveled I against the Demopolis, Alabama I plant, mentioned in Ferguson’s I article, and brought to the counters attention by Pennington, had I nothing to do with environmental I endangerment by the plant, but I rather with administrative reg-| ulatory compliance.
I Pennington asked the council to support the banning of ■ LaFarge from feeling its cement I kilns with hazardous waste. Cur-I rently, LaFarge is appealing a Ideation which denied them a per-Jpmit to bum hazardous waste. ii However, the permit was I denied review by TACB following the adoption of Senate Bill I ;1099 which prohibits the bum-l ing of hazardous waste within a lone-half mile radius of a resi-I dance.
I; In our opinion, the half-mile I biting prohibition was an arbi-I trary distance established by the I legislature using no health-based I information,” Schneider said.
I Judge Sam Sparks ruled that I LaFarge was indeed within a one-ihalf mile radius of a residential I ^structure and was therefore not I neligible to be permitted by the I TACB.
I; However, since the law was I passed after LaFarge began the I permitting process, Sparks said in I his decision that “LaFarge I [expressly makes the law some-I [what repugnant, but doesn’t I cause the law to be unconstitu-I tonal.”
Sparks said further that LaFarge had clear reason to test the statute, and that there was good reason to believe that SB 1099 was passed with LaFarge in mind.
Currently LaFarge is appealing this ruling in the 5th District Court of Appeals in New Orleans and Schneider said he doesn’t expect a quick ruling; and Schneider said LaFarge is hoping for a fair chance to allow their permit to be held up to the scrutiny of the public based on the technical mer-its of the project
Pennington said opponents of the TACB permit should not rest, and that recent studies by the E.P.A reported by Ferguson should act as a wake-up call to New Braunfels residents.
"LaFarge was the recipient of what we would consider to be a favorable decision in district court and they are appealing; that doesn’t mean their denial is permanent,” Pennington said.
Elements such as dioxins, Burans and even plutonium were found during tests of cement kilns, and although the E.PA has not determined the exact dangers of the levels of the toxins on humans, they have begun testing at least six more kilns.
Schneider said that in some cases the devices used to measure toxicity levels of plant emissions during testing produced negatively skewed results.
Contact between a gas sampler and a stainless steel rod caused a measuring instrument to reveal high levels of chrome emissions, he said. However, after re-mea-Suring the emissions with a nonmetallic probe, the chrome levels decreased dramatically.
Councilman Paul Fraser said that the permit denial is not an assurance that LaFarge will not receive a permit in the future.
think the people need to be apprised and kept real aware that just because we’re in the appeal process ... that certainly does not mean we ars ou| of the woods on this one.”
In the March 9 article headlined "City OKs first reading for $1,500 river fee increase,” the final paragraph was partially deleted. It should have read as follows:
Herbelin said the advisory board will be monitoring the activity of the park during the summer to provide consistent counts of park usage.
The Herald-Zeitung regrets any confusion this may have caused.
