Public Event | Clean Air: Project Millvale

Join local air quality experts, activists, and elected officials on Aug. 5 for the unveiling of the new Air Quality Station installation in Grant Avenue Pocket Park in Millvale.

GASP Executive Director Rachel Filippini will be among the speakers, joining award-winning filmmaker and local activist Mark Dixon of Inversion Documentary, Matt Mehalik of the Breathe Project, state Rep. Sara Innamorato, and New Sun Rising’s Zaheen Hussain.

Participants will explore the opportunities and challenges of air quality in Pittsburgh – learning about sources of air pollution, as well as the associated health impacts. Most importantly: Those in attendance will learn how they can become more engaged in clean air advocacy.

But that’s not all: Those who attend the virtual event will be see – for the first time – the design of new air quality monitoring stations being installed in Millvale, Etna, and Sharpsburg. These stations will display the real-time Air Quality Index (AQI) in each of the three boroughs.
