A joint effort to reduce dangerous air pollution in the Lehigh Valley. Participants include the Alliance for Sustainable Communities–Lehigh Valley, Clean Water Action, Bethlehem Partnership for a Healthy Community, Environmental Policy Design program at Lehigh University, and RenewLV.
Two known aggravating factors for asthma and other respiratory diseases are ground-level ozone and Diesel pollution—and both Lehigh and Northampton counties consistently fail to meet EPA limits for both these pollutants. One result is that this is one of the worst areas in the entire country for asthma sufferers.
