Please don't relax air pollution standards

DEQ should not relax rules on air quality or water quality for that matter.  In fact, they should tighten them.  Data Centers salinate water before releasing it and until they can stop that it is important for all residents to be able to rely on clean drinking water.  Air quality impacts many, I live on the beltway so adding to that carbon emission is very problemmatic.   These data centers need to be more sustainable before they can be allowed to take over every square inch of Northern Virginia.  It is just not sustainable for them to keep developing at the rate they are with these major infrastructure flaws.  Clean it UP!  We are all relying on DEQ to ensure we have clean air and water.  Please do your job.


Thank you.
