Friend us on Facebook!
The People of Allegheny County and our children have the right to breathe clean air. However, Allegheny County continuously ranks in the top 2% of counties in the United States for cancer risk from toxic air pollution. Just ten facilities in Allegheny County represent the bulk of cancer risk for the region. The Shenango Coke Works was one of these facilities until it baked its last batch of metallurgical coke in early January 2016 after intense pressure from surrounding boroughs. This channel serves as an archive documenting Shenango’s emissions as well as a place for continued monitoring of the legacy of this site on Neville Island.
DTE Shenango Coke exceeded permitted emissions limits every 5 of 7 days. Find out about its health impact, and watch and measure emissions, on Shenango Channel.
