The map shows the Fond du Lac Indian Reservation as the orange shape in the center, which is requesting that the air over the reservation be redesignated to Class I status. The circles radiating outward from the reservation show how far out the sphere of influence could extend, depending on a complicated set of factors including on the amount of new pollution that would be generated by a new industry or business and its distance from the reservation, as well as air stream direction.

The massive 260-acre pit between the Hilltop soccer fields and Interstate 35 is home to three gravel pits, a wood storage yard, an industrial landfill (center) and an asphalt plant, among other things. Noise was an issue this summer, with rock crushing going on at the gravel pit and the landfill operating at higher levels. The landfill and the gravel pit are on the agenda at upcoming city meetings.
