Larry Allen, Executive Director of the San Luis Obispo County Air Pollution Control District announces the results of the Phase 2 study of air pollution downwind of the ODSVRA to the APCD.
The City Council of Pismo Beach attempts to discredit the study, ignoring the health of residents in Nipomo in favor of alleged economic benefit to Pismo.
Kris Vardas, who is both on the Pismo Council and the APCD Board, questions the scientific validity of the study. Another Pismo council member tried to discredit the study with the claim that offroading increases vegetation on the dunes. He presents a power point presentation to the APCD board showing increased vegetation, not realizing the vegetated area had been fenced off to OHV use.
