Norfolk Southern: Dirty, Dangerous and in Your Backyard

Event-Date: 
Monday, May 13, 2019 - 6:30pm

Members of Rail Pollution Protection Pittsburgh (RP3) will give a presentation on the Norfolk Southern Railroad's Pittsburgh Vertical Clearance Project (PVCP).

The presentation is titled "Norfolk Southern - Dirty, Dangerous, and In Your Backyard" and will provide comprehensive information about the PVCP including the health impact of black carbon diesel pollution on those living within the high risk zone, and the dangers of running double-stacked trains alongside oil cars through densely populated city neighborhoods. RP3 will also cover the railroad’s involvement in the expansion of the petrochemical industry, and how to use cameras/monitors to gather baseline information.
