Over this past Christmas, residents in the Mon Valley suffered from nearly a week of unhealthy air pollution levels – violating federal Clean Air Act standards. The main culprit was the U.S. Steel Clairton Coke Works, one of the largest single sources of air pollution in Allegheny County. Despite fines and legal actions, U.S. Steel has failed to clean up their plant which has long subjected residents in Clairton and throughout Allegheny County to pollution that can cause asthma attacks, heart attacks, and strokes.
We need leadership in Allegheny County who will stand up for us and protect our health from unaccountable polluters like U.S. Steel. Please email County Executive Rich Fitzgerald today!
