NO to the DEQ Variance

Please listen to the extremely knowledgeable environmental advocates and the equally knowledgeable community leaders who are trying to protect both air quality and citizens.

This issue just reinforces the position that data centers don't belong in residential areas, especially not a mere 50 feet from property lines, which is the current regulation in Prince William County.

It is unconscionable to exacerbate the toll on us citizens and our air quality with this variance. Data center development is in dire need of regulation and oversight. Please don't continue to burden citizens rather than regulate corporations and hold local governments responsible for their inept and inhumane planning debacles that citizens worked to prevent and were ignored. A variance is not the solution to the power grid issues. Regulation of data center development is.
