Put people first over McConway & Torley air pollution

Dear Allegheny County Health Department,

Everyone deserves clean air to breathe, including residents of Lawrenceville and the surrounding communities.

And yet, right in the heart of this densely populated area, the McConway & Torley steel foundry is emitting soot that gives asthma to our children, heavy metals that are known neurotoxins, and other cancer causing pollutants.

I urge you to hold McConway & Torley to health-based emission standards that put people first, to rigorously monitor emissions, and to enforce compliance.
