Local Pollution & Your Health Forum

Local Pollution & Your Health Forum
Date: Tuesday, June 25, 2019
Time: 6:30 PM
Place: Bay Area Community Center, 5002 East NASA Parkway
Free: No RSVP required. Public meeting.

Recent petrochemical pollution incidents caused by Hurricane Harvey, ITC/Deer Park fire and the Bayport Channel ship/barge crash spread air and water toxic emissions of dangerous benzene, xylene, butadiene, vinyl chloride and other toxic releases. Red lights are flashing for Houston residents. Add in the KMCO fire, Arkema explosion and others too numerous to list, and it’s clear that the current industrial community may be stretched too far to consistently protect residents. Worse yet, the southeast Texas petrochemical industry is in a massive new development phase fueled by Permian Basin oil and LNG, further expanding the likelihood of more dangerous incidents.

Planned speakers include:
Galveston Bay Foundation – Bob Stokes, President
Air Alliance Houston – Lucy Randall, Board Member
Sierra Club Houston – Melanie Oldham, Air Quality Chair
Environmental Defense Fund – TBD
District 129 State Representative Dennis Paul – Invited
