Abstract

In 1997, the Environmental Protection Agency began classifying areas with high levels of air pollution as within or not within attainment of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards. The Liberty-Clairton non-attainment area is a distinct region inside the Pittsburgh non-attainment area that has been given specific attention due to high levels of particulate matter pollution. The vast majority of the pollution is attributed to US Steel’s Clairton Coke Works plant, a coke manufacturing facility one mile from the Liberty Boro monitor. This essay will explore the relationship between Clairton Coke Works and the Liberty-Clairton non-attainment area, attempting to connect source to exposure and health effects. In a larger respect it will demonstrate the impact of air pollution on public health.
