LDEQ will host a public meeting regarding environmental assessment at the Dresser site in Pineville at 6 p.m. Tuesday, July 7, at the Granberry Conference Center off Allen Drive on the campus of Louisiana College in Pineville. This in-person meeting was scheduled after a June 10 online meeting had to be canceled because of internet connectivity issues.
The meeting at Louisiana College will feature presentations by both company and LDEQ personnel. Although there will not be in a question-and-answer format, LDEQ will respond to a set of pre-selected general (not address-specific) questions submitted by residents. Therefore, the public is invited to submit advance questions by email to Dressercommunitymeeting@LA.GOV before Friday, July 3.
After the presentations, members of the public will be afforded an opportunity to comment. Comments will be limited to a predetermined length to ensure all who wish to speak have time to speak. LDEQ will provide a meeting moderator and a court recorder. Video and audio of the meeting will also be digitally recorded.
Attendees at the meeting are asked to observe the Centers for Disease Control COVID-19 recommendations for public gatherings, including social distancing requirements and the wearing of face masks. Temperature checks will be required to enter the meeting. Anyone who registers 100.4 degrees or higher will have to wait 10 minutes for a recheck, and if their temperature has not then fallen below the requirement, they will not be allowed to enter the meeting.
Louisiana College is located on College Drive in Pineville and can be reached by taking U.S. 165 (Main Street/Military Highway) and College Boulevard. Parking for the meeting will be available in two lots on campus, and LDEQ will put up temporary signage directing the public to the meeting site.
**June 10th online meeting cut short, to be rescheduled**
The online public meeting scheduled for June 10 will be rescheduled. The agency attempted to hold the meeting Wednesday evening but encountered Internet connectivity problems which caused the meeting to be cut short. LDEQ apologizes for any inconvenience this action has caused for citizens and stakeholders.
Please find the video presentations from the interrupted meeting here: https://youtu.be/dA4vwILWezY. The video contains answers to some of the questions received via email prior to the meeting. Any outstanding questions will be addressed online on the LDEQ website in the next few days.
If you emailed a question specific to your property with a return email address, you will receive a reply to your question. As soon as the technical issues are resolved, a new date will be set for the online meeting.
Please continue to monitor this Dresser page on the LDEQ website for the latest information.
