Pollution Graphic

Hopewell residents suffer from some of the worst toxic air pollution in the state, and the biggest polluter's operating permit is about to be re-issued. Will the public to have an opportunity to weigh in, or will the process ignore concerns from citizens?

Contact the Department of Environmental Quality to ask for an open, transparent process that includes a public hearing with opportunity for the public to speak.

Hold a Public Hearing for Honeywell

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a resident of Virginia I am concerned about toxic air pollution and its impact on my health and the health fellow Virginians. I urge DEQ to require large polluters to significantly reduce their air pollution emissions.

I am requesting a public hearing on the Title V Operating Permit for Honeywell International, Inc., 905 E. Randolph Rd, Hopewell, VA 23860; Registration Number 50232.

This information is critical to my understanding of how this permit may impact my health and the health of others. For these reasons, I believe that a public hearing is required in this case.
