Dust and Emissions Monitoring 

As part of its contract with the University, the Plenary/Webcor development team is required to apply water to the site during construction to minimize dust. Webcor has committed to revisit its approach close to ECEC and to increase their observations and monitoring to ensure minimal dust is created.
