Letter: Dunn County Concerned Citizens meeting

Dunn County Concerned Citizens will be holding an informational meeting for citizens to hear concerns and ask questions about radioactive oil field waste facilities. With the final passage of the rules to increase the concentration of radioactive material that is allowed to be stored, or more appropriately buried in North Dakota, we are open for business in siting these facilities to the highest bidder.
Dunn County has seen presentations from the Department of Health stating that a low dose of radiation exposure is safe and compared it to a granite counter top in your home. We have attended presentations from landfill and transfer station companies telling us that they will use the most up-to-date technology and safest practices in sorting, storing, and transferring radioactive material across our communities, roads, and pastures.
We will provide information on why this is not good for Dunn County. This is our opportunity to talk about safety and the threat to our enviroment, health, and our livelihood.
Dunn County Planning & Zoning and County Commission members have been invited to attend this meeting to listen to their constituents’ concerns. Former Executive Director of the ND Cowboy Hall of Fame, Darrel Dorgan will be the guest speaker. He will be presenting information from his organization the ND Energy Industry Waste Coalition about the concerns associated with radioactive oilfield waste. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.
Where: High Plains Cultural Center
When: April 5th, 2016 at 7 p.m. MT
-Come be a part of preserving Dunn County for future generations.
Dunn County Concerned Citizens
Linda Kittilson, Curt Kralicek, & JoAnn Marsh
