Dear Editor,

First, let me thank the Whig for publishing the article on Stancil’s proposed asphalt mixing plant at 499 Mountain Hill Road, Perryville, MD.

If the Whig had not published the article on October 22, 2021, not many people would have known of Stancil’s intention. The asphalt mixing plant will be emitting carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, crystalline silica, nitrogen oxide and other hazardous pollutants. These pollutants will affect the air for a two mile radius.

As a homeowner within this area, I am very much opposed to the building of the plant. If the state of Maryland approves Stancil’s application without an environmental impact study there can be a public hearing ONLY if the public asks for it. Shouldn’t public opinion be part of the approval process??

Diffusion is NOT the Solution! Let’s not put these chemicals in the air and then we will not have to breathe them.
