Taking On Industrial Pollution and Greenhouse Gases

Title V of the Clean Air Act requires “major sources” of air pollution to obtain operating permits from the EPA or a state or local agency authorized to issue these permits. In Allegheny County, the Allegheny County Health Department in Allegheny County decides these permits. Join GASP, PennEnvironment, Clean Air Council, Clean Water Action, Environmental Integrity Project and the Breathe Project in the effort to clean the region’s air and reduce greenhouse gases.

CAC's Southwest Pennsylvania Neighbors for Clean Air

The goal of the Southwest PA Neighbors for Clean Air initiative is to create 100 neighborhood groups of 10 members throughout the region so that residents can learn about and take action on the most pressing environmental issues in Southwest Pennsylvania. In the nine months since the first leader training session, CAC has trained over 80 group leaders, and 20 groups now meet regularly. Contact Dave Smith ([email protected]) to join a group or find out more information.
