Reported by: Cecilia Muzika-Minteer

Time of Day: 8:25 a.m. - 9:00 a.m.

Observation: On camera across the road on Pennsylvania Avenue

Type of Complaint: Excessive dust emissions from from Riverside Concrete

Submitted to ACHD: Yes (Reference Number: H401874-071324)

Description: Through the morning’s operations the dust collector on the mixer at Riverside Concrete appeared to still be malfunctioning and spilling excessive toxic emissions into the nearby residential community. With a large tarp functioning as a safety component of the machinery due to the broken dust collect for over a month, visible at the base of the mixer, some of these emissions are forced toward the back of the site rather than directly across the road, yet these emissions are still visible in the air polluting the local community with dangerous particulate matter. These emissions are in conflict with Section 5.0 Actions for Fugitive Emissions Management of Riverside’s Fugitive Emissions Management Plan. In the camera evidence below these toxic emissions are visible in the air after being generated under the site’s mixer and often beyond Riverside’s property line.

Submitted to ACHD: Yes (Reference Number: H399479-061524)

Description: While I watched Riverside’s operations I was overwhelmed by the amount of normalized emissions which are visible coming from under the mixer throughout the day but primarily in the morning hours of operation. In the clip below emissions are visible coming from under the mixer and though the emissions seems light they are still visible crossing the wall along Pennsylvania Ave. Emissions such as these are normalized on Riverside’s site, with little to no regard for the residential space across the road, actions which are negligible. For two weeks Riverside has been operating their mixer with excessive emissions coming from it during the day, with a larger tarp beneath the filling area, and an almost constant stream of light emissions has been coming from the equipment harming residents.

Time of Day: 8:20 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.

Observation: On camera across the road on Pennsylvania Avenue

Type of Complaint: Excessive dust emissions from Riverside Concrete

Submitted to ACHD: Yes (Reference Number: H399478-061524)

Description: As I viewed Riverside’s operations on camera at accancamera.com I noticed emissions raised under the mixer on several occasions as trucks were being filled. The large tarp under the mixer and general maintenance activities make it seem as if the mixer is in need of repair and that thus those who operate the site acknowledge the machinery is functioning in an unsafe way yet they continue to use it. In the camera evidence below excessive emissions can be seen coming from under the mixer and nearing and crossing the wall which is on Pennsylvania Avenue directly across from residences. It is known that both cement dust and the particles from additives used in the concrete making process are directly linked to adverse respiratory health outcomes in children and adults.

Observation: In person across the road on Pennsylvania Avenue

Type of Complaint: Excessive industrial and diesel odor from Riverside Concrete

Submitted to ACHD: Yes (Reference Number: H397699-052824)

Description: Lots of trucks backed up to wall idling. So strong my living room smells like a truck stop.

ACHD Response: “...After reviewing the BreatheCam footage, there are multiple trucks with their drums spinning and queuing to load. Those drums would not be spinning unless there is material in the truck. We cannot regulate how they operate their business if the trucks are working on their property. Thanks, ACHD

Resident Response: “I wanted to see if you could hold riverside accountable for the fugitive emissions I recorded crossing the line I don't see why you guys cannot enforce on them. I shouldn't be able to smell their business inside my house with the door shut. My neighbor smells it as well. This is a health hazard.

Reported by: Cecilia Muzika-Minteer

Time of Day: 8:50 a.m. - 10:45 a.m.

Observation: On camera across the road on Pennsylvania Avenue

Type of Complaint: Excessive dust emissions from Riverside Concrete

Submitted to ACHD: Yes (Reference Number: H397547-052424)

Description: While I watched Riverside’s operations on camera I noted as dust was raised several times by trucks moving through the industrial yard and much of the emissions can clearly be seen beyond Riverside’s property line. Below in the camera evidence dust can be seen being raised by various trucks and machinery a lot of which can be seen hanging in the air within residential space. The dust is excessive and though the water truck is used to control dust emissions this tool is often used after heavy dust has been consistently pushed into the community, enough so that the water truck continues to raise dust as it drives.

ACHD Response: “Thank you for using GovQA to submit your dust complaint. ACHD representatives were at the facility on 5/24/24 in the afternoon and discussed the dust previously seen on the far side of the property. We will continue to address your concerns with the facility and observe for dust. Thanks, ACHD

Why are they allowed to continue without being fined. Why have they been able to continue to operate their mixer without a proper dust collector?

Type of Complaint: Excessive industrial odor from Riverside Concrete

Submitted to ACHD: Yes (Reference Number: H396795-051724)

Description: Burning plastic smell, and extremely strong diesel smell. It's mornings when it rains like this if you guys were out here right now you would see what I'm saying. It's a very strong sweet chemical smell accompanied by very strong diesel. Can faintly smell in my front room. Thank you

ACHD Response: “Thank you for submitting your odor complaint through GovQA. We plan to visit the facility on a rainy morning to experience this. Unfortunately, we have many other responsibilities that we can not make it out today. As we have stated before, they have already submitted a request for determination with our department and they are authorized to operate their facility without an air quality permit. There is no process in concrete batch facilities that would create a burning plastic odor. Their process has not changed in the last few months to explain the burning plastic smell that you are now experiencing. We cannot address the diesel odors if they are actively working. A pneumatic tanker requires the power-takeoff drive on the tractor to operate and run during pump-off while conducting work, this would require the tractor and pump to run and idle approximately an hour or so. The facility is not in violation when operating to conduct safety checks for pre-trip starts or when a tractor continues to idle/run while conducting work onsite. We will continue to monitor the facility. Please continue to use GovQA only for issues that we have the regulatory authority to address. Thank you, ACHD

ACHD Response: “thank you for using GovQA, ACHD received and reviewed your complaint and attachment dated 05/15/24, H396547-051524. After review, it is hard to tell what work is being conducted on the other side of the concrete block wall.

ACHD representatives will continue to monitor the facility at Riverside. Thank you again for using GovQA, ACHD Air Quality.

Resident Response: The video clearly shows their dust cross the line. That goes against article 21 regardless of the type of work they are conducting. No dust or debris should cross the property line as it does in the attached video. They are in undeniable violation of article 21 on video.

April 16, 2024 - Complaint #1

Reported by: Colin Schreiber

Time of Day: 6:00 a.m.

Observation: In person across the road on Pennsylvania Avenue

Type of Complaint: Excessive dust emissions from Riverside Concrete

Submitted to ACHD: Yes (Reference Number: H393558-041624)

Description: Right in front of my house by their gate. Multiple trucks idling for an hour at a time. They have had at least 6 trucks idle for an hour, they didn't get out and do any "checks" I watched them since 5:30 AM they just powered their diesel trucks, and let them sit. This is not right.

ACHD Response: “...Thank you for using GovQA to submit your complaint. As we have stated many times, they are must complete a pre-trip inspection required by the DOT Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations. We cannot enforce for idling under Article XXI when the trucks are working. If you have complaints for noise this early in the morning, then you should be directing your complaints to the borough. ACHD has continued to respond to your complaints and address them with Riverside when they are enforceable under Article XXI.  As you have told us before, I understand that you are documenting your issues with Riverside through these complaints. Please only submit complaints for issues that you know we can enforce under Article XXI.Thank you, ACHD Air Quality

Resident Reponse: “I watched them from 5:30 to 6:30 they didn't get out or walk around the trucks. They got in sat and idled for an hour straight. That goes against article 21. I also have 1 hour straight footage of them not checking trucks and leaving them powered not working sitting in them. How is that not enforceable?

ACHD Response: PA DEP Act 124 Fact Sheet states, “DEP understands that ACHD has determined that Act 124 preempts Allegheny County’s local ordinance.

 

State law Act 124 preempted two of ACHD’s idling regulations (school buses and truck idling).

This law prevents ACHD inspectors from enforcing Act 124.

 

DEP understands that ACHD will provide compliance assistance for Act 124 to citizens and companies and will refer complaints requiring enforcement action to local or state police, or the DEP regional office.

 

ACHD responds to all idling complaints received both through the GovQA complaint system and those received from the PA DEP.

ACHD conducts an initial idling inspection and then follows up with the complainant and informs them they may also contact the local police, the PA DEP regional office or ACHD upon reoccurrence.

Please let ACHD Air Quality know if you have any questions, Riverside should have their Act 124 signs posted to where their drivers are aware of the PA. State regulations, thank you, ACHD Air Quality.

Type of Complaint: Excessive Industrial emissions from Riverside Concrete

Submitted to ACHD: Yes (Reference Number: H387980-020924)

Description: When watching Riverside Concrete and Supply operations on camera I noted what seemed to be dust emissions raised near the mixer as a truck was idling in front of the equipment. The emissions from this process can be seen separately from the emissions produced by the idling truck in the foreground in the camera evidence below.

ACHD Response: “Thank you for using GovQA to submit your complaint. Based on your video, that does appear to be steam based on how it is dispersing. Dust would continue to travel and would not disperse in the way it does in this video. Additionally, visible emission readings can not be taken in the dark with the lights behind the emission. The facility heats the aggregate bins on colder days which can produce steam. We will continue to observe the facility. Please continue to use GovQA for issues that we have the regulatory authority to address. Thanks,  ACHD

I observed both sides of riverside/ Bryan concrete from 1:00 to 1:30 I saw huge dust clouds, and saw their trucks stirring it about the area across from the grass island on Pennsylvania avenue, at the end of my street between their 2 buildings. I also caught one of their loading trucks outside their gate. at the other end dragging dust clouds off of their property past the apartments. It was also a large amount of dust. On the other end I videoed 2 trucks, one a cement truck with mixer, and the other a loader. off of their property with dust trailing them before they entered their fence. Thank you again for helping me out. You have been a huge support, and ally in this fight for clean air on my street. It's sad more people don't respect the environment. Thank you- CCS

Reported by: Angelo Taranto

Time of Day: 10:30 a.m. - 11:10 a.m.

Observation: In person across the road on Pennsylvania Avenue

Type of Complaint: Dust raised on site

Submitted to ACHD: Yes (Reference Number: H370625-072623)

Description: I observed Riverside/Bryan from about 10:30 - 11:10 AM. When I was at the site on 7/21/23, I saw that entry way to the plant and the road outside the plant had been cleaned up and that very little dust was being raised by company trucks. While I was not able to get photos, I wanted to report that today, however, it was clear that dust had begun to accumulate again and was being raised by truck traffic in and out the site, dust that was raised and traveled beyond the company’s property line. It was clear that the road and entryway had not be swept recently. The watering I did see them do later would not have been adequate to keep dust down because it was so hot today and the small hose being used could not put much water down.

ACHD Response: Angelo, thank you for using GovQA. ACHD reviewed your

7/26/23 dust complaint regarding Riverside Concrete & Supply, Coraopolis, complaint # H370625-072623. Thank you for your onsite observation July 21, 2023, during the hours of 10:30 -11:10 AM, ACHD continues to make random spot checks. As stated previously, The Bryant Materials Group has a Fugitive Emissions Dust Control Plan in place at Riverside Concrete & Supply which is regulated by ACHD Article XXI regulations. Thank you again for using GovQA, Air Quality.

ACCAN Response: Thank you for your response.  I would still like to know why the

company does not have an air quality permit.

Observation: In person across the road on Pennsylvania Avenue

Type of Complaint: Dust raised on site

Submitted to ACHD: Yes (Reference Number: H370070-072123)

Description: I observed Riverside Concrete & Supply from about 10:00 - 11:30 AM I have attached photos of large, sometimes very thick dust clouds being raised during that time. It was raised during what looked like the loading of a truck.

ACCAN Response: I am adding a few more photos to my complaint that I found that further document the massive amount of dust raised yesterday at Riverside/Bryan. I assume this is cement dust.

ACCAN Response: The attached PurpleAir screenshot shows a spike in the PM readings at the time of the photos that were sent in with the complaint showing dust clouds raised on the Riverside/Bryan site at 889 Pennsylvania Avenue in Coraopolis.

ACCAN Response: I did not receive any response to my complaint, so I don’t understand why you are marking it as completed. Angel Taranto

ACHD Response: Angelo, thank you for using GovQA, we received your nine (9) photographs taken along Pennsylvania Avenue while following the fence line and gates of Riverside Concrete & Supply, Coraopolis. ACHD reviewed your 7/21/23 FE “DUST” complaint, H370070-072123. ACHD representatives reviewed your photographs and reviewed the one (1) PurpleAir monitor snapshot that you attached, please explain the PurpleAir attachment, there is no time stamp or location, we don’t review these as being accurate and there is no calibration. We’ve been in contact with the Bryan Materials Group regarding FE “dust”, they have a compliance plan in place, as you can see the lot was watered. The trailer that you photographed

are the pneumatic trailers, they were not loading, they were unloading to the SILOS. There was no indication of FE being released from the SILOS while you were onsite 7/21/23, between 10:00 – 11:30 hrs. Your FE “DUST” complaint has been reviewed, will be shared, and discussed with the Bryan Material Group, usually there is no dust around the trailer or tractor while unloading to the SILOS. The visual dust in your photographs taken while you were on site, show no indication of dust leaving the property lines while they were unloading. Thank you again for using GovQA, ACHD Air Quality.

ACCAN Response: Thank you for your response.  There are a couple things I want to respond to.

1.  You asked for an explanation of the PurpleAir snapshot.  The time and date are indicated on the X axis along the bottom.  The monitor ID (e1x8) is also along the bottom, which identifies it as the monitor on Pennsylvania Ave.across from the cement plant.  The PurpleAir map would have been clearer about all of this, but I wasn’t able to get a screenshot of that.

2. You also indicated that you don't consider the PurpleAir readings as being accurate and that there is no calibration of the monitors.  I included the screenshot not to focus on the absolute value of the monitor reading, but  to point out the association/correlation of the spike in the reading at the same time that large clouds of dust were generated on the cement plant site.  I believe that this is worth noting.  While the visible dust emissions are not seen beyond the property line, it is reasonable to believe that smaller particles, like the PM 2.5 that the PurpleAir measures, were traveling beyond the property line. We are concerned about how this PM is affecting the health of residents on Pennsylvania Avenue and in the larger neighborhood, which includes residents with babies and young children. Thank you for the explanation of the unloading process. Angelo Taranto

Description: On Wednesday, 7/5/23, I submitted a complaint - Reference # H367823-070523. Every time I have observed Riverside-Bryan I have observed dust clouds that traveled outside

the companies property line. I submitted a RTK request to get a copy of their air permit. The response I received indicated that there is no air permit for that company/location. I assume that means that they are not required to have an air permit. Why aren’t they required to have one?

Description: I observed Riverside - Bryan from about 1:15 - 2:40 PM. from just outside their fence.

During that time I saw their cement trucks raising clouds of dust that traveled across

the property line as they travel to and from jobs and from one yard to another. Since

they knew they were being observed, they tried to drive very slow; however, even doing

that they often raised clouds of dust since the street they were driving on was covered

with dirt and dust. The attached photos show evidence of the dust clouds they were

raising.

ACHD Response: Angelo, thank you for using GovQA, we received your ten (10) photographs taken along Pennsylvania Avenue while following the fence line and gates of Riverside Concrete & Supply, Coraopolis.

Observation: In person across the road on Pennsylvania Avenue

Type of Complaint: Dust raised on site

Submitted to ACHD: Yes (Reference Number: H305858-031622)

Description: Clouds of sand, and dust. It comes from the building and into the street the piles of sand, and gravel get picked up by the wind and blown about. The fumes and dust combine with the mess from the adjacent property riverside concrete. All day long the trucks from riverside drive through the mess and kick it up.

Would like to see them be held accountable for their pollution. Not to mention both properties dump trash in to the river behind the locations

Reported by: Colin Schreiber

Time of Day: 12:00 p.m.

Observation: In person across the road on Pennsylvania Avenue

Type of Complaint: Dust raised on site

Submitted to ACHD: Yes (Reference Number: H305258-031422)

Description: Concrete residue, fumes, residue coming from plant towards homes, and buildup on my property as well as others.

I live across the street from riverside concrete. All day long they dump dust and concrete bags in to a metal stack that pores across to houses and in to homes. They have various construction vehicles spewing gray clouds of smoke in the air, and dump bag after bag down this metal shoot. Half the time it falls off the sides and hita the ground leaving thick trails of dark concrete dust and giant clouds that make their way to the homes across the street. My sister lives a few doors down and has had to get a second inhaler. There are many elderly people who live on my street as well. I have a pregnant girlfriend living with me who tells me daily she can't breath. I don't see how its legal for them to do this so close to peoples homes. My neighbor tells me he can't breath well either because of this factory.
