In this video, experts from the Southwest Pennsylvania Environmental Health Project discuss their report, Safety Assessment of Siting Large Shale Gas Compressor Stations in Residential Neighborhoods in New York State. This report shows how EHP's tools have been used to assess potential health impacts related to the ongoing expansion of shale gas pipeline infrastructure in New York. Recorded March 4, 2020 at the University of Albany.
Through its community partnerships, air screening models, and recent research into New York's compressor station emissions, EHP has determined that there are direct and indirect health impacts associated with chemical emissions from these sites and that surrounding communities experience extreme episodic exposures that are not detected by agencies using the current federal air monitoring methodology.
In the two videos below, Dr. David Brown, Dr. Celia Lewis and
Dr. Sujit Joginpally of the Environmental Health Project,
discuss their 2017 report regarding Air Emissions from
