After Ms. Martin has shown evidence of the major amounts of dust continually blanketing her home to her families physicians, she was told by the majority that 'Not even an adult with healthy lungs could withstand this amount of dust, let alone it's dust from unknown construction debris, or its toxins.' Because of the protection for this toxic landfill, and it's deadly contaminated dust protected by Town of Catskill, and Governmental Protection agencies, Stella Martin had to make the tough choice to move her family from their Home, and give up the house she owns, because NOONE will help protect the families.
The health issues over the years to the families/children have added up, and many of the health issues became much more serious. Many of the health issues damaging the nearby families, are from the toxins that have been airborne. Some from the toxins in the composting, or from the dust of the illegally dumped contaminated debris. This large property that has expanded by dumping the illegally transported debris into protected wetlands, and raising the property above the neighboring residents properties, has No Precautions in place to protect the health of those families. How would you feel to see this amount of dust consistently coming towards your Home, and send your children out to play knowing what this amount of dust can do to their lungs? What I find disgusting is that even with Ms. Martin, and other neighbors providing the Town of Catskill supervisor Doreen Davis, the local municipality, and Elliot Fishman the Town of Catskill Code Enforcement Officer many videos, photos of visual proof, they still complete their investigation continually stating that 'Dust on this property is Not a danger to its neighbors'?
So the Town of Catskill will not even Impose this large business facility to install sprinkler systems to control their hazardous dust, to keep from causing health ailments to neighboring children's lungs after receiving hundreds of videos like this one? It's more precious to neglect the undeniable proof of large amounts of hazardous dust to save the Landfill Owner money for water, then the protection of innocent children nearby? The EPA, NYS Region 4 DEC's investigation, along with the NYS Health Department continually report that their investigations show that the dust does Not move more then 5 feet? They have received the many hundreds of videos as well as Proof that this toxic landfill's dust moves many more then 5ft.
These are extreme, and hazardous conditions the neighbors are forced to endure, and can Not get any protection for their families, with all of our Governmental Protection Agencies protecting the toxic landfill. As Martin states in the explanation of the video, her concerns are not just the amount of dust, but what exactly the dust consists of. After witnessing the tractor trailers dumping through out many nights, and many other forms of illegal dumping to this property, Stella has witnessed part of what's been dumped which includes concrete/cement, asphalt, old bricks, all sorts of garbage, admitted construction/demolition debris from unknown sources.
Martin raises a good point explaining that if a person works at a cement/concrete, asphalt facility then they are forced by law to wear protective masks from the dust created. Even mining properties are enforced with sprinkler systems. So while many large trucks continually drive over this toxic construction debris crushing it further into a finer dust, it is what become part of the dust coming at her family, and this hazardous dust is protected by our Agencies? Ms. Martin has provided the same Governmental Agencies, Physicians/Specialists letters stating that the breathing issues herself, and young children began struggling with, was a direct result of the hazardous activity of this landfill, and has still been neglected to this day. This is also the dust that blankets the protected wetlands, and the area for endangered wildlife. A lot of the dust is of the construction/demolition debris dumped created on this landfill property, and many other forms of dumping over many years, however there are major concerns for the large composting process also. The business owner processes the compost with out any precautions as well, creating many health ailments for the families. Most people are not aware of how dangerous a large composting facility can be. The process of composting creates very hazardous Endotoxins, and Bio-Aerosols, deadly bacteria, and other various serious health issues it creates.
With the recent investigations from large agencies like Cornell, and Harvard, it has come to be a reality that there is no question that Composting creates these hazards. It's very simple that if you have a Composting process, then you have these very serious dangers from it. Especially for neighboring properties, or properties downwind like the Martin family is. We will post an update here soon following up about the composting activity, and health impacts it has had on the Martin family aside from the illegal dumping.
There are numerous doctors, and specialists reports for the many health issues that have been created for Stella Martin, and her 3 children that our Government Protection Agencies neglect.
