Following the recent release of a preliminary public health assessment related to emissions from the Bristol, Virginia landfill, the City of Bristol, Tennessee will host an information session where the findings of the report will be detailed and members of the public will be able to ask questions. This session will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 12 at 6:00 PM at the Slater Community Center, 325 McDowell St.
The assessment, commissioned earlier this year by Bristol, Tennessee, was completed by Laura Green, Ph.D., president and senior toxicologist for Green Toxicology LLC of Brookline, Mass. Green holds a Bachelor of Arts with honors from Wellesley College and a Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She is certified by the American Board of Toxicology.
In light of ongoing pandemic conditions, Green will deliver the presentation via live video conference, though attendees will still be able to ask questions directly. Socially distanced seating will be available in the Slater Center gymnasium with additional overflow seating in the auditorium. The session will also be live streamed on the city’s YouTube channel at youtube.com/watchbtntv with an opportunity for questions to be submitted electronically.
The public health assessment preliminary report, as well as a summary of air sampling data and laboratory results, may be viewed at bristoltn.org/BristolVALandfill.
