As you may know, earlier this year the State of Minnesota passed a law banning the sale and use of coal tar pavement sealants. The new law goes into effect January 1, 2014.
In order to prepare for this transition, the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) is hosting a free webinar to explain the details of the ban and the science that led up to this decision. As described below, registration is required for the hour to hour and a half seminar.
If you only knew the effort statewide that went into getting this ban passed. It is the culmination of research, investigation and a lot of discussion at the state and local level. Thanks to all of you who worked to make this happen.
Even if you don’t live or work in Minnesota, it will be a good time to learn more about the state of the science, how Minnesota intends to enforce the ban and there will be an opportunity for questions after an hour.
