A Look At The State’s Annual Air Report On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, the American Lung Association released its annual State of the Air Report, which grades Americans’ exposure to unhealthy pollution levels. Aimee MacCleave, advocacy director for the American Lung Association’s West Virginia office, spoke to Appalachia Health News Reporter Emily Rice about West Virginia’s report card.

Also, in this show, Mon Power has offered to operate the Pleasants Power Station into next year. But how much will it cost? Will the plant produce any power? Curtis Tate has more.

And, Morgan County citizens have organized weekly gatherings at Cacapon State Park in protest of a plan by the state’s Division of Natural Resources to build an RV campground on park grounds. Shepherd Snyder has the story.
