    About This Project

    There is a proposal to significantly increase the number of trains carrying coal through Washington State, but at present little is known about the likely health impacts from this plan. Our project will examine air quality for people living near the tracks for both fine particulate (diesel) and larger particles that may be associated with coal dust. Phase 1 was completed last year. Phase 2 takes place in Fall 2014 in Bellingham (campaign here).
    Blast off!
