Watertown, NY, Jun 04, 2010 — More than a hundred people came to the Department of Environmental Conservation's first public hearing last night in Watertown about outdoor wood furnaces. The DEC says the boilers are a significant source of air pollution and have never been regulated. It wants owners to replace old furnaces within ten years and erect higher chimneys to keep smoke away from neighbors. But the message in the room was nearly unanimous. People said the new rules are a major government intrusion and should be scrapped. David Sommerstein reports.
