Informational meeting to be held Tuesday in North B’ham cleanup area

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Do you know what is in the air you’re breathing?

That’s part of the information a Birmingham city councilor is giving people who live in his district, as an industrial plant cited for contamination is requesting a new air emissions permit.

Councilor William Parker and the City of Birmingham are pushing people in North Birmingham to be involved in informational meetings conducted by the Jefferson County Department of Health.

Doing so will help them learn more about an air emissions permit requested by Walker Coke, a plant that has been the center of attention for the past few years.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is in the area now, cleaning up contaminated soil.

The next informational meeting will be held Tuesday, April 15 at the Harriman Park Recreation Center.

The meeting will start at 6 p.m.
