I'm curious to know how the air quality is in the Whiting/Robertsdale area. We live in south Hammond next to the expressway. We want to move, mainly because of the expressway but also to move further away from the industrial smells. We have been looking at Highland, Griffith, etc. Recently we drove up to the lake. My hubby is new to this area and he fell in love with the older, charming homes in the Whiting/Robertsdale area. Living closer to the lake in a charming older home sounds interesting to me as well.

However, one thing worries me....air pollution. Here in south Hammond I can smell the industries any time we have a north or northeast wind. If the wind is from the northeast we get mill smoke. It makes me sick. So I was wondering, if the wind is blowing from the north in Whiting or Robersdale, do you just get fresh air from the lake? How much do you smell BP? Do you get mill smoke a lot? If the wind is from the south do you get other pollution? Really I need to know! Thanks in advance.

I can't get away from pollution by moving closer to it, can I? Sorry, it was a crazy idea. The houses are so nice, and affordable. *sigh*

Your concerns on the air may be the exact reason WHY they're so affordable :/ Unfortunately.

Hope you find what you're looking for.

Air quailty isn't going to improve moving closer to the source.

I wasn't under the impression that is that safe of an area now either (anyone, feel free to correct that if I've been misinformed), I thought whiting has a gang problem...which if true is a shame because even though its always been working class there are some lovely old homes in there.

I would think South Hammond would have better air quaility (overall) and be safer...especially if you are far enough south to be near the expressway.
