A report this week found that the McConway & Torley steel foundry in Lawrenceville is among
Allegheny County's top ten industrial polluters and responsible for toxic emissions - including pollutants linked to asthma, cancer, and heart disease.
Sign our petition and tell the Allegheny County Health Department (ACHD) to protect our air quality!
Over 147,000 people live within three miles of the foundry, which is the third largest stationary source in Allegheny County for benzene and manganese, chemicals linked to cancer and neurological disorders.
Earlier this year ACHD proposed an operating permit for McConway & Torley that would reduce their harmful emissions, a much needed step to ensure our communities are healthy and vibrant.
