Good news from Green Bay last night! A unanimous decision was passed on the ordinance banning coal-tar based sealants and a resolution recommending a state wide ban. Tar-based pavement sealants are the primary source of toxic PAH pollution in urban landscapes and are harmful to human health and hurt fish and aquatic life in our lakes and rivers.
Since receiving a grant in July 2019 from the Fund for Lake Michigan, LNRP, through its staff and contractor Jon Richards, were able to meet with local officials to pass ordinances banning coal tar sealant in the Cities of Racine, Oak Creek, Plymouth, and Sturgeon Bay.
