Mountain State Spotlight partner ProPublica’s latest investigation maps the spread of cancer-causing chemicals from thousands of U.S. sources of hazardous air pollution between 2014 and 2018. Now, for the first time West Virginians can see how toxic air leaves nearby facilities and spreads into their communities.
Have you lived or worked in South Charleston or Institute? If so, Mountain State Spotlight and ProPublica reporters want to hear from you. We’re working on a local story about this industrial pollution and the effect on West Virginians’ health. If you have worked at or lived near the Union Carbide/Dow plant, please get in touch with one of our reporters by filling out this form. The more people we hear from, the better our reporting will reflect a diverse set of experiences.
