Wood Boiler Causing Pollution Ordered To Be Removed

Published by:

Businesses in Portsmouth know how important it is to have a boiler that follows the regulation or else it could affect their operation. This is why BoilerRepairsinPortsmouth.co.uk is hired by local businesses to conduct repair and maintenance regularly. A business from Bethlehem could learn from this practice after it has been order to shut off its wood boiler which is found out to be a cause of air pollution.

The business is an excavating company located in Selkirk and the neighborhood has been complaining about the black smoke it emits. The Department of Environmental Conservation under the state said that they could be charge with $3,000 fine if no proper actions were taken.

Blair Excavating and Contractors is owned and managed by Daniel Blair and he agreed to shut down their current wood boiler which is currently installed at their facility located at Elm Avenue. The order said that removal should not exceed the 15th of May. Under the same order made by the DEC, it was mandated that the boiler should not be sold to other businesses located within New York.

Regional officials for the DEC said that they are willing to hold the $3,000 fine unless the order for removal is not followed. On February of this year, state inspectors went to check the boiler after a lot of complaints regarding the smoke emitted by the unit.

In recent years, outdoor boilers have become too common as another way to heat establishments but the older models produce too much smoke which is affecting the neighborhood thus they decided to file a complaint.

According to the limit on the state rules, smoke allowed should have a maximum 20 per cent opacity. This means that the particles in the smoke should not be blocking over 20 per cent of the light. When tested, the boiler has an opacity test of 73 per cent.

Due to complaints, the rules regarding the standard of the wood boilers sold have also been stricter. Regardless of the new rule, dealers are still given permission to sell the remaining boilers that are not in compliance to the rule.
