Air pollution has serious health consequences. Given Allegheny County’s persistent air quality problems, and most recent emissions issues related to the U.S. Steel Clairton Coke Works fire and its aftermath, local environmental organizations are beefing up efforts to educate folks about what exactly is in the air we breathe, and how air pollution can affect your body.
Clean Air Council, in conjunction with GASP and other environmental organizations, is hosting a series of workshops about the topic—and you’re invited.
Here’s what you need to know if you want to go:
WHEN? 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. June 4
WHERE? Community Economic Development Corporation at 363 Halcomb Ave, Clairton, PA 15025
WHAT? Attendees will have an opportunity to rotate through three air quality-centric presentations from:
Dr. Deborah Gentile, who will discuss health issues related to air pollution
GASP, which will provide an Air Quality 101 lecture and
Air monitoring experts, who will present information about how the technology works and what all is being detected in local air
WHO’S INVITED? The event is open to the public.
