Lima Ohio -
At Tuesday's Environmental Citizens Advisory Committee, the Ohio EPA addressed air pollution with their 2011 Allen County Air Quality Report. Measuring for 74 toxins, three times throughout the year, environmentalists found Allen County's large number of factories and refineries has led to some of the highest amount of air toxins being released in Ohio. According to the study however, Allen County's air quality is among the best in the state.
One concern that came about involved ammonia and methanol, two chemicals not being tested for. The Ohio EPA states that the air quality in Allen County is safe and believes residents have nothing to worry about.
