Allegheny County is in the top 2% nationwide of risk for cancer based on air quality. The highest cancer risk in our ten county region is in the town of West Elizabeth, in the Mon Valley. That is according the recent study by the Center for Healthy Environment and Communities (CHEC) at the University of Pittsburgh. On Wednesday December 4th, the region was declared an air quality alert day with its levels of PM2.5 the highest in the nation during the 8AM hour. These results demonstrate that despite solid progress, much more needs to be done.
A discussion of what can be done will be held:
6:00 – 7:30 pm, Wednesday, December 11
Municipal Boro Building
800 4th St, West Elizabeth 15088
Hosted by Residents for A Clean & Healthy Mon Valley (REACH Mon Valley), with speaker Drew Michanowicz from CHEC and others. This is your opportunity to learn more about the risks, express concerns, ask questions, and talk about what we can do to improve the air quality in the region.
