RosslynVA Pollution Awareness

Attention, residents of Arlington, VA!

Skyrocketing rents and home prices, but No mention of the serious health hazards from dust and noise.

Instead of warnings and health advisories, we have been fed “picturesque renderings.” These aren’t just distractions. They’re part of a crafted illusion to divert attention from the gritty reality of dust, noise, and chemical pollutants from construction projects.

LIVING NEAR CONSTRUCTION OR DEMOLITION SITES MEANS THAT YOU ARE EXPOSED TO HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES AND BREATHE THEM EVERY DAY. But no one is warning you of the dangers.

Local counties and state agencies are making decisions about your life, your future, because they know the risks but do nothing to inform residents.

If the air you breathe every day contained substances dangerous to your health, wouldn’t you want to know?

What’ in the Air?
How Loud is too Loud?

The health risks aren’t just ‘potential’ as often stated. They are proven and backed up by data!

Trying to find answers left me to dust…”

Air vents and HVAC filters

This much dust in just 30 days.

Are you inhaling this?

They won’t tell you, but I will!

Toxic dust is floating in ArlingtonVA air, and no dust mitigation method exists that is powerful enough to fight the winds or stop pollutants from spreading, especially when giants crumble. The problem is ignored, willingly concealed from you. The dust suppression regulation, or more accurately, the ‘suggestions’ of using a ‘wet-method,’ is kept just for show, so you don’t question. And it has became customary for managers of construction work in Arlington not to follow dust mitigation or not follow the procedures.

Arlington is beside the Potomac river, ever thought about what the wind carries? It’s not just dandelion seeds, I assure you!

Because these redevelopment projects are located in an area subject to high winds due to its proximity to the Potomac River, which divides Washington and Arlington, there is no way to contain the harmful particles within the job sites.

Are ‘water spraying’ tactics efficient, or just wasting our resources?

The Laughable Effort to Control Construction Dust

Hon. Mr. Dorsey can you assure everyone, both residents and those who are here from 9 to 5, that their health is not at risk as a result of the constant dust and noise from the ongoing construction and demolition activities in Arlington?

Should you worry about the air quality in ArlingtonVA? YES!

No health disclosures is putting the residents at risk!

Multiple high-rises, infrastructure adjustments, policies change and yet no public disclosure.

Transparency isn’t just policy, it’s a human right and a moral duty!

Could the noise of the ongoing construction be dangerous for our pets?

Pet Safety: monitoring their behavior for any signs of distress. During construction, keep them indoors, providing a safe and quiet space.
