“It’s become evident that the air quality decreased since the start of the development because of the increased truck traffic and from the flaring. I have heard many complaints by people about things like upper respiratory issues and asthma problems increasing since the start of development.  The combination of dust from trucks and emissions from flares create what’s called aerosols. Aerosols are a particle that floats in the air a lot smaller than a dust particle and this type of air particle can get into your lung and eventually launch into areas of your body like a heart and the brain.”
