Detroit Public Television’s One Detroit has been reporting on air quality issues here in the Detroit are – emissions from vehicles and industry, along with health issues because of airborne chemicals like sulfur dioxide. And there’s fugitive dust – where the City of Detroit has been looking at ways to address that problem.
Here’s a look at what’s been happening on that front, and a hard-fought new ordinance that’s now on the books, which passed just last fall: Chasing Fugitive Dust.
The article and video was produced by Bill Kubota, Senior Producer for Detroit Public Television’s One Detroit initiative. It has since been picked up for republishing by CityLab, a major national website focused on urban issues.
