Uptown – Hill District

Concerns around air quality in the Uptown, Birmingham and Hill communities were first raised during an Uptown Partners meeting more than five years ago. Residents currently hold a bi-monthly meeting that is facilitated by Christine Graziano to discuss concerns.  One of the biggest pollution concerns is the Lindy Paving and Asphalt Plant located under the Birmingham Bridge and several surrounding businesses.

Featured Campaign

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 decides these permits. Join GASP, PennEnvironment, Clean Air Council, Clean Water Action, Environmental Integrity Project, SWPA Grassroots Air Quality Town Hall activists and the Breathe Project in the effort to reduce pollution greenhouse gases.
