"Sources of Pollution and School Siting" April 28 - Congressional Briefing, Capitol Hill, DC


Center for Health, Environment, & Justice, American Federation of Teachers, Global Community Monitor and Natural Resources Defense Council are sponsoring a briefing on Tuesday April 28 entitled “Sources of Pollution and School Siting”. It will be held at Canon Building room 304 in Washington DC from 10am -12pm.

Thirty years after the Love Canal crisis closed two elementary schools due to contamination, few state and no federal laws exist to prevent schools from being built on or near sources of pollution. This past December, USAToday released a series of articles ranking over 1,000 schools on air contamination and just this past week EPA announced air testing outside 62 schools in over 22 states. EPA is also set to release national school siting guidelines this year that can be adopted by state governments and local school boards. As this issue becomes increasingly important to so many communities, please join us as we discuss the particular concerns related to school siting, children’s health, and what we can do as advocates, parents, and concerned community members to prevent the siting of schools on or near sources of pollution.
