BELLINGHAM, Wash. – A study in Seattle finds that coal trains cause more pollution than other trains, while another in Australia finds that they don’t, but what about in Bellingham?
Katie Skipper with the Northwest Clean Air Agency say they monitored air quality at railroad tracks off of Cornwall Avenue near the old Georgia Pacific site.
Twenty months of data revealed that air quality was good on all but five days.
On those fives days it was moderate, a level that doesn’t cause health problems.
