The Environmental Committee reviews, prioritizes, studies and makes recommendations to the CAC-and ultimately Flint Hills Resources -on issues related to air, water, solid waste, and other environmental areas from both a community and a regulatory perspective. The committee works with independent consultants to collect and review data and to assist it in making its recommendations.
The Safety Committee provides recommendations to Flint Hills Resources on enhanced refinery safety programs and community initiatives. One major Safety Committee milestone was to help establish the Flint Hills Resources Emergency Notification through the Dakota County Communications Center. To learn more about the Dakota County's emergency notification call system, or to self-register additional contacts, please go to http://www.mn-dcc.org and click on the Community Notification tab on the DCC website.
