“We know that volatile organic compounds comprise a serious hazard to human and animal health within 2500 feet of the source. Admittedly, the dust from oil field traffic may also have something to do with my chronic cough and my wife’s asthma attacks—which in her case have sometimes been life

threatening. But dust has always been a problem in hot, dry eastern Montana, yet we have noticed a marked increase in lung trouble since about 2011. I can’t help but feel that outgassing from all these locations is a factor. And I believe we see an uptick in livestock respiratory problems especially in pastures close to multiple locations.”
