Neighborhood residents say a dust screen that was installed last week at Louisville Gas and Electric’s Cane Run Power Station isn’t working.
A video taken this weekend by neighborhood residents shows clouds of dust billowing over and around the 50-foot-tall screen the company installed near its sludge processing plant.
Greg Walker lives across the street from the plant, and shot the video.
“It’s ridiculous that a neighborhood has to police a company that size,” he said. “I don’t understand it.”
Walker says it felt like sand was pelting him as the dust moved off of LG&E’s property.
LG&E spokeswoman Chris Whelan says Saturday’s events aren’t indicative of how the screen will operate in typical weather.
