Feds Take Aim on Dust Standards
10/12/2010
 

STERLING, Kan. (AP) - Some Kansas farmers and lawmakers say they

are concerned how a federal review of dust emissions might affect

the family farm.

After all, they say, it's hard to avoid dust on the farm or

prairie.

The Environmental Protection Agency is reviewing airborne

pollutant standards - which includes dust - as required by the

Clean Air Act.

A draft released by the EPA in July would tighten air particle

standards from 150 micrograms per cubic meter to between 65 and 85

micrograms.

Mark Smith, president of the Kansas Livestock Association, tells

The Hutchinson News that it would be nearly impossible for farmers

to meet such low levels.

The American Lung Association is among those supporting stricter

dust limits.
