State wants to launch a full-blown study of health risks of dust blowing from Point of Mountain

The Utah Health Department has strongly urged Lehi not to base any policy decisions on the state’s hastily completed and far-from-conclusive recent study of possible health risks from blowing dust from construction and mining at the Point of the Mountain.

A letter from Sam LeFevre, manager of the state’s environmental epidemiology program, said his agency intends, pending approval from the Utah County Health Department, to conduct a more complete site-based study estimated to take about a year.
