Mount Pleasant Village President David DeGroot addressed the air and water permitting processes for industrial users, like Foxconn, in the
Racine Journal Times
"Foxconn's advanced manufacturing campus in Mount Pleasant will be transformational for our c
– creating new jobs and new tax base for our residents and enhanced economic opportunities for the entire state. At the same time, we must ensure that the project is environmentally sustainable, protecting the air we breathe and the water we drink," said DeGroot. "That's why I'm pleased that
Foxconn is being held to the exact same rigorous standards
for water, wastewater and air permits as every other industrial user in our community."
