SAHUARITA : Sufren por trabajos en nogaleras ...pero Ley dice OK

Pecan harvest

Sahuarita, AZ.- Billowing dust clouds have prompted three complaints to the state since the pecan harvest began Jan. 2. An inspection by officials from the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, which regulates air quality from agricultural sources, was scheduled for Tuesday, with a follow-up report expected today, ADEQ spokeswoman Erin Jordan said. 

 According to hourly readings from the local monitoring station, particulate-matter concentrations peaked Jan. 7 at a reading of 106 for the month so far, and slightly into the 101-150 category — regarded unhealthy for sensitive groups including the very young, elderly and people with respiratory or heart conditions.

Readings come from Pima County's monitor at the government complex at La Cañada and Desert Bell drives. No air quality advisories have been issued for this area by Pima County Environmental Quality Department since the harvest began, according to the department's website. ........................
