Resident speaks out about EPA ruling
Shreveport, LA (KMSS) — A Shreveport resident is celebrating tonight but says there is still much work to be done.
For years Velma White who represents Residents For Air Neutralization has been fighting to restore better air quality in her neighborhood.
The EPA ruled yesterday that Shreveport Company Calumet would have to install a new monitoring system on its' property along with paying over $300,000 in fines.
White says while she is happy that the violations have been brought to the surface, she wants to see representatives from the company get back out into the community.
"I think they need to take the people in the community into more consideration and get out in the community and help these people," said White.
White also said that she praises the new leadership at the Environmental Protection Agency in Dallas.
