Newberry Springs Community Alliance
'For a greater insight of Newberry Springs.'
by Ted Stimpfel
According to the Newberry CSD's agenda for its
January monthly board meeting, the CSD has scheduled,
"Guest Speaker's (sic) From Clearway and Blattner to
Address Dust Control From Daggett/Newberry Springs Solar Site."
The CSD is attempting to address the dust arising
from the Daggett Solar Power Project that the CSD permitted to be built
after the CSD board violated its solemn promise to the community's residents
to litigate the project.
The Newberry CSD had a clear opportunity to stop
the project based upon the project's clear violations of multiple county
policies, ordinances, and state law.
For reasons that are still unclear because of the
CSD's evasiveness and indecent secrecy, the CSD foolishly grabbed the bait of
a mere $200K settlement and capitulated for peanuts to the billion-dollar-plus
This has left the residents living downwind subject
to the highly dangerous toxic dust generated by the facility.
The mowed and disturbed soil crust will remain susceptible
to the wind taking the dust airborne for years after the completion of the construction.
Water trucks are not a solution as moisture evaporates
too quickly and does not bond the soil as the soil bacteria and fungus do over
Even the CSD's General Manager, Jodi Elder-Howard, recognizes
the horrific sand and dust problem in this Facebook post.
Remember, the construction is just beginning and it is
expected to last for another 4 to 5 years !
The CSD's meeting should be of interest to
Newberry's residents concerned about the dust arising from the project.
The Newberry CSD will hold its meeting on
Tuesday, January 25, at 6 P.M.
Newberry Community Center
30884 Newberry Road

is encouraged to join our activist victims' group. With sufficient
numbers, we may be able to address this outrageous public harm.
