The State of our Air

Enough is Enough.

The air quality in St. Bernard neighborhoods can be so poor at times that residents shelter themselves in place or hold their noses when they are on the roads that pass through the industrial facilities.

Louisiana law prohibits LDEQ from issuing a permit that maintains a nuisance or a danger to public health and safety, and furthermore, technology exists that could protect public health and reduce toxic air emissions. State-of-the-art technology and additional air monitoring should be required to ensure all three major source’s air permit limits are maintained, and air monitoring may even help the plants and refineries become more efficient.
