County Executive Fitzgerald: Clean up the Toxic Ten

Allegheny County has some of the dirtiest air in the country, ranking in the worst 2% of the U.S for cancer risk from industrial air pollution. Much of this pollution comes from just ten sources, the Toxic Ten, which alone account for 70% of the industrial air pollution reported in the county.

Despite recent progress, there’s still a lot of work that needs to be done. Allegheny County Executive Rich Fitzgerald and the Allegheny County Health Department need to take bold action to fulfill their Clean Air Act requirements to protect our health from this pollution.
