I live, am raising my family in, work and worship in west Louisville and am working with Councilwoman Woolridge on this petition. I believe that we can have economic development in west Louisville that protects our environment and respects our people. We do not need a methane gas plant that transports waste through our neighborhoods on a daily basis (a minimum of 25-30 trucks per day according to Nature's Methane), that harms our already fragile air quality, and that is subject to plant failures. I ask for your support because your actions today can stop a disaster tomorrow.

Here is one concern about one such anaerobic biodigester in Wisconsin:

"Then came the explosion, which knocked off the roof made of a lightweight membrane material. Doll said workers used a fan to inflate the roof after cleaning.

"The assumption was made that since the valves were closed, there would be no methane gas in the tank," Doll said. "That was a bad assumption."

Another mistake: The fan was a type that can produce sparks.

"It blew up and started the roof on fire," Doll said."
