TOXIC Air In North Irvine – 10,911% Increase of Benzene!

With the release of the video documenting the Community Meeting on the health and safety issues concerning AAA located in North Irvine, Councilmember Larry Agran is once again calling upon the City Council to take up the concerns of the residents living near the asphalt plant; he is asking Mayor Farrah Khan to call a special meeting of the City Council to address this issue. 

Councilmember Agran said, “With reports of cancer-causing toxins, like Benzene and Hexavalent Chromium, being released into North Irvine neighborhoods near the All-American Asphalt plant, it is our duty and responsibility to thoroughly investigate this matter and act quickly to ensure that Irvine residents are safe.” 

This community meeting was hosted by Councilmember Agran’s office, with the support of community organizers from, Non-Toxic Neighborhoods(NTN) and Stop Toxic Asphalt Pollutants (STAP) in Irvine. Speakers included; NTN’s “volunteer” advisor Dean Baker, MD, MPH University of California, Professor Emeritus, Former Director of UCI’s Center for Occupational and Environmental Health, Professor of Medicine, Pediatrics, and Epidemiology, NTN’s founder Kim Konte, STAP’s founder Lesley Tan, Northwood High School students, and many Irvine residents.

We hope Mayor Farrah Khan finally agrees to host a “special” public study session with our “volunteer” UCI advisors and the Irvine residents ASAP to works towards a solution concerning this potential public health crisis.  There is no higher priority than meeting your constituents’ needs concerning their health and safety.
