Lorraine W., PA

I live in Butler County on the border with Allegheny County-Pittsburgh region. I have asthma and allergies having spent my childhood in Pittsburgh and in a household of smokers. I am under the care of a pulmonologist and cardiologist. My concern is no monitoring of Butler County anf and can only assume it is an F county because there are fracking sites all over the county. My children have allergies, they are now adults.  All of us stopped smoking through decades, me 36 years ago. Some grandchildren have allergies. Please add the reality of allergies and small particle pollutants bonding especially from major fires and wood burning fireplaces.
