Township opposes coal tar sealant uses

Coal tar sealants won't be allowed on roads or driveways in the Town of Sturgeon Bay.  The town board heard a presentation Monday from Dean Hoegger, with the Clean Water Action Council.  It pointed to the higher risk of carcinogens making their way into homes as coal tar sealants fade.  Town Board Chair Dan Cihlar says the presentation was enough for the town to let private contractors know that alternative coatings will need to be used in the Town of Sturgeon Bay.



The process of adopting a coal tar sealant ordinance will take place at future meetings of the Town of Sturgeon Bay.  Hoegger's presentation pointed to research that found coal tar sealants contain more than a thousand times the carcinogens than asphalt does, namely polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons.
