Demolition Dust

Washington LaSalle

Every demolition job is required to have dust control. Yesterday while driving down Washongton Ave I was enveloped by a cloud of dust.

This dust is harmful and is wafting over a very large area of Central City, creating a toxic dust cloud, anyone have Alphonse Jacksons phone number? or even Rene from HUD? it is all a joke anyway isn’t it?
