PA BUCKET BRIGADE Public Meeting May 4, 2011 at 6 pm at Avalon Borough Building. Allegheny County continues to release more toxic chemicals than Beaver, Butler, Washington, and Westmoreland Counties combined! These chemicals damage our environment and harm our health. The Allegheny County Health Department uses the Air Toxic Guidelines to control future sources of pollution. The existing version was established in 1988, making it over 20 years old. Currently, a committee of academics, industry professionals and environmental advocates is working to develop a new document for the Health Department. A public comment session will be held May 4, 2011 at 6 p.m. at the Avalon Borough Building. They need to hear community input to make the new document used for permitting pollution sources and protecting the air we breathe as strong as possible.
