US Steel Mon Valley Works - Flares
If you ever wondered how big the flares are that U.S. Steel is using to vent pollutants while they fix Clairton Coke Works, here are some shots of the flares at Irvin Works. They are huge (75ft between outer bases) and roar across the valley. I also smelled foul industrial odors most of the time I was there, and one man drove by and said that people with asthma in the area were having a tough time breathing.
