DUST COMPLAINTS CAUSE VESSELS TO BE TURNED AWAY IN GODERICH
6/16/2017 6:23:56 AM
There have been complaints of grain dust released into the air at the Goderich Elevator.
A number of West Street residents have allegedly complained to the Ministry of the Environment about the particulate matter in the atmosphere during loading and unlaoding of ships and trucks.
Vessels are being turned away from Goderich Port, and area farmers having to pay the extra freight to load their product in Hamilton.
The equipment used in the loading process is supplied by the firm Parrish and Heimbecker, which has 108 years in the industry.
Coincidentally, P&H recently invested $6 million in upgrading its loading facilities in the Steel City.
Goderich Chief Administrative Officer Larry McCabe concedes loading equipment at Goderich Port may need upgrading, and is attempting to arrange a meeting with Parrish and Heimbecker about it.
