Time & Location

Jun 02, 2023, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Clairton, Clairton, PA, USA

About the event

Many air quality regulations are based on plume opacity. Air Quality Program staff often attend Smoke School to learn how to evaluate plumes. Now, you can become familiar with those skills, too, and make more meaningful air quality reports as a resident smoke reader.

You're invited to join GASP at 2 p.m. June 2 in Clairton to view and discuss emission plumes and become familiar with opacity and smoke reading.

To get folks prepared for the afternoon, we will also be holding a Zoom meeting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, May 31, where GASP will provide some general background information and share varied plume photos as a warm-up for the upcoming field trip. We hope you can attend both events but one does not depend on the other.

We will visit two locations but the meet-up will start in Clairton at the end of Shaw Avenue as it becomes Ridge Avenue. Caldwell Street intersects at this point as well. This area offers an elevated view of the Clairton Coke facility.  

Bring a clipboard, pen, and watch with a second hand if possible (your cell phone could work, too).

PS: The registration links for both the Zoom session and more info on the field trip will be provided after registration.
