Comment TODAY 5/18 on Council’s Renewable and Clean Energy Portfolio Standard

The City Council Utilities Committee meets tomorrow (Wed 5/19). Don’t miss this opportunity to make your voice heard on the City Council’s Renewable and Clean Portfolio Standard. This standard requires that, by the year 2045, all electricity supplied by Entergy comes from energy that does not add to the climate crisis.  Let the Council know you support the standard without nuclear energy. Ask your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers to do the same.

914 Dante St: Uptown Messenger Article

Several facts in this article are wrong (Hooper is the owner, not an employee of Riverlake, and no formal subdivision request has yet been made), and several important points made during the interview were left out (ie, losing green space for water retention, etc.). But here it is. Thanks to Betty and Jill for doing interviews.

Please see the following article on the historic property at 914 Dante.

Online Survey: SWB Industrial Noise & Pollution

Please do our survey about the Sewerage & Water Board noise and air pollution. EVEN IF you are not directly impacted, you can express concern for those who are. Feel free to share the link far and wide.

Industrial Noise-Pollution Petition & Survey

Today (5/15) several CRNA board members walked around a petition and a survey. The same will take place tomorrow. The target area is nearby residences, businesses, churches, and people on both sides of Leonidas, near SWB Carrollton plant. The petition states that the signer is concerned about the effects of the SWB industrial noise and pollution. The survey asks if the person is affected, how, and such.

The aims are to (1) get documentation that people ARE affected and ARE concerned (whether they are personally affected or not) and (2) let people know that their voices are being amplified and (3) encourage people to contact us, attend meetings, or just email us their experiences.

It is disturbing how many of the people we spoke with today are affected and yet have not been reached out to about this.

15 May Update: SWB’s Turbine 4

SWB T4 (turbine 4) was supposed to start up again, or at least be installed, on 9 May. SWB has been testing it since then, perhaps delayed a bit by the troubles that caused our most recent boil-water advisory, I don’t know. They said Thursday that testing would continue through the weekend if necessary. The public has been told that the noise will be greatly reduced when it comes online.


Today, 15 May, we were told by Ghassan: “they are still relying on T1 and that ‘T4 tripped offline twice yesterday’.” He hopes that there is no need for the EMDs (diesel generators).
