I am considering relocation to Louisville. I came across the USA Today article about the smokestack effect. It showed the schools around Louisville had very bad air quality. There was also an article about the efforts made to clean it up by some locals. I am wondering if anyone has any new information about the air quality now that a clean up has taken place. The data used in the smokestack effect studies was from 2005.
Thanks!

Another hit on Jefferson County Public Schools. Add them all up and JCPS is a no go. But regarding Ohio Valley smog. There is no doubt the high humidity does create some air quality issues. EPA just restricted open burning in neighboring Oldham County for this reason. No doubt, I would have concerns about Jefferson County, especially the NW corner where there is much air-dangerous industry.

The entire Ohio Valley has bad air quality due to all kinds of industry and old coal power plants that are grandfathered into the system. Doctors tell people with respiratory issues to move away from the area if they want improvement.
