Hi, we are moving into the area possibly.
Is anyone concerned about the proximity of those factories to the schools.
There are so many reports and complaints about the health dangers of the dust and carcinogenic spores in the air that can cause cancer (what doesn't nowadays).
Anyways, is there anything to be concerned about? I know the wind usually blows east to west and the school is directly south...
Just wondering on others thoughts who might care about this situation.

I don't have information specifically about a cement factory; however, there is a large paper mill on Route 5 southwest of that area. It is called Bowater Albirtiri.

The Bowater plant puts out some foul odors that reach as far as uptown Charlotte, depending on the direction of the wind.

I live in Indian Land and have noticed foul smells; usually on Sunday mornings, depending on what process they are doing. I don't notice it frequently, but it is a concern I have to admit.
